An inquest has been opened into the death of a teenager, who fell from the 17th floor of a block of flats in Woolwich after police officers arrived to arrest her.
Shanice-Paris Goff, 18, had been convicted in connection with three street robberies in London in 2009, and was out on licence after serving part of her sentence.
Scotland Yard said that officers were attempting to recall her to prison, when she fell from the window of the flat on the 10th of April.
The hearing at Southwark Coroner's Court heard that Ms Goff had gone into a bedroom to "get changed" before she fell. But Detective Sergeant Sue Thomas, from the Metropolitan Police's directorate of professional standards, said that Miss Goff had not been arrested by the time of her death.
She added that there was no reason to believe a serious crime had taken place.
Coroner Andrew Harris adjourned the inquest, pending the results of an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. The incident has also been referred to the Metropolitan Police's directorate of professional standards.
Carpenter Michael Mulkerrins, 28, who lives two floors directly below the woman, said his partner heard a row from inside the flat a few minutes before the incident.
He heard an argument, he heard shouting and bawling. About 10 minutes later she was out of the window. He didn't see the girl but he did see her on the floor. I've seen him quite a lot by himself. It could be his flat and she was staying over.

He said he spoke to the man when they passed in the corridor, and described him as "an alright chap". The man often had a skateboard, he said, and had lived in the block for around four months.
