A 43-year-old woman plunged to her death from a fifth-floor Bronx apartment on Friday ó just as cops arrested a man in connection with a robbery on the same floor, police said on Saturday.

The woman plummeted from her window on Grand Concourse near East 163rd Street in Concourse Village around 3:15 p.m. Cops say itís unclear whether she jumped, fell or was pushed.

Police found the woman unconscious, with trauma to her head and body, in a side alley of the building. EMS workers responded and pronounced her dead on scene.

Around the same time, officers responded to a call for a robbery in Apartment 5R of the same building, police said. They found Pedro Perez, 46, inside the apartment, carrying a loaded semi-automatic pistol.

Perez was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, cops said. Itís unclear whether he played any role in the womanís death ó or whether he knew her.

The womanís name has not yet been released, pending family notification.
