A 20-year-old woman staying at a New York City hotel plunged to her death during an altercation with her boyfriend.

The man was arrested but not charged for his girlfriend's death, police said.

Dezirae Anderson and her 24-year-old boyfriend, Tyler Griffin, both from Colorado, traveled to Manhattan with their 8-month-old daughter, reported CBS News. The two were staying at a hotel in Times Square when a violent altercation broke out between them Tuesday evening.

The New York Police Department received calls about an assault in progress at the OYO hotel before Anderson fell to her death. While some reports said Anderson plunged to her death from a 10th-floor balcony, others said the young mother fell from the roof of the hotel.

Anderson and Griffin's room was found ransacked. Police believe the man struck his girlfriend repeatedly before the fight spilled into the hotel's hallway.

Griffin, at some point, also pulled the infant's arm and she fell down a flight of stairs, reported ABC7NY. Another guest staying at the hotel took the child, who did not suffer any harm.

Anderson and Griffin then went separate ways before the woman fell several stories to her death.

"I heard, like, a loud boom. Almost like a gunshot. And I was like, 'What is going on?'" a hotel guest, identified as Yumna Khan, told CBS News.

"When we hear the noise, my wife wake up from the bed. Moved the shield of the windows and she said 'Oh, it's a body, it's in front of us,'" Juan Gamboa, another guest, told the outlet.

Officers found Griffin acting erratically in the hotel lobby and used a Taser to subdue him. He was arrested and charged with assault, reckless endangerment and acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17.

The man is not facing charges in connection with his girlfriend's death because he was not with her in the final moments before the fall, police said. As Griffin awaits arraignment at Manhattan Criminal Court, Child Protective Services took over his daughter's custody.

They did not confirm whether Anderson's fall was accidental or whether she jumped on her own.

Investigators also found marijuana and edibles inside the couple's 10th-floor room.
