The woman’s 37-year-old partner was in the unit at the time, police said.

Following inquiries by detectives over the past few days, they arrested the man as he was leaving the unit block at 9.30am today.

He was taken to Surry Hills police station, where he was charged with murder.

He was refused bail and is expected to appear in Central Local Court today.

Investigators want anyone who saw anything suspicious on the balcony to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

They have been told a group of workers wearing fluorescent shirts were in Hyde Park at the time.

Police think they might have seen what took place on the balcony and urge them to come forward.
