Police search for man accused of pushing his girlfriend out of a second-story window

OGDEN -- Police are looking for a man they say pushed his 27-year-old girlfriend out of a second-story window last month.

Ogden Police Lt. Scott Conley said there is an arrest warrant for Ryan Davidson, 25, stemming from a June 16 incident when officers were called to an apartment building on the 500 block of 22nd Street.

Davidson called 911 after the woman fell out of the window. The 15-foot fall broke her arm, and she had cuts from breaking through the glass.

"(Davidson) indicated they were horsing around," Conley said about the man's initial interview with police. "He was chasing her, and she tripped over the ottoman and fell through the window glass."

When police examined the bedroom where the woman fell, they saw that the ottoman was not adjacent to the window, Conley said.

"What he was explaining didn't match what they were finding on the scene," Conley said.

When the victim was first interviewed, she told police that her daughter had been in the shower and yelled for her so she ran into the room and tripped over a small chest by the window.

Conley said the victim contacted police on June 23 and told them the story she told them previously was untrue. She said that her daughter was in the shower, but that she wasn't running after her," Conley said. The woman said she had been pushed by Davidson. "Before he pushed her, they were arguing about not taking care of the kids."

Conley said that when Davidson called 911 the day of the incident, he initially told dispatch that he pushed his girlfriend.

During the call, a woman could be heard in the background asking why he pushed her out, Conley said, and Davidson replied, "Oh, my God, I didn't mean to."

Officers have made multiple attempts to locate Davidson, who recently moved to this area from Massachusetts, but have not found him. Davidson is currently on parole for a robbery conviction in Massachusetts. A warrant for one count of domestic violence assault and two counts of domestic violence in front of a child was issued June 29.
