A report of a woman heard screaming first drew a police response to the neighborhood, LAPD officials said in a written statement.
Officers encountered a man in the street who told them his roommate was being assaulted inside her home, police said. The roommate relayed that he had jumped a wall and ran to neighboring homes in search for help.
When officers went to make entry, they found the victim on the ground beneath a third story balcony, according to the LAPD statement. The victim was gravely injured. She suffered significant injuries consistent with a fall.
Investigators learned that Harwick had recently expressed fear about her former boyfriend, Pursehouse, police said. She had obtained a restraining order against him at one point, but that order had expired. Harwick was last known to have seen Pursehouse about two weeks ago.
A task force found Pursehouse about 4:30 p.m. Saturday at a home in the 8100 block of Cabora Drive in Playa Del Rey, according to police and Los Angeles County booking records.
Bail for Pursehouse was set at $2 million pending his initial court appearance.

They had a falling out.
“A prominent Hollywood marriage and family therapist died after she was found below a third-floor balcony at her Hollywood Hills home on Saturday, and her ex-boyfriend had been arrested on suspicion of murder”
totally ironic, huh? “prominent” marriage and family therapists offed by her boyfriend, and all ... what does that say about the value of her “prominent” services? of course,i guess that doesn’t matter all that much now, though i wonder if her former clients are devastated to lose her therapy or devastated because they now feel ripped off ... i guess that depends on how good of a con “therapist” she was ...
Harwick, who was a Playboy model before starting her practice specializing in psychotherapy and sex therapy, was reportedly engaged to television star Drew Carey before the couple split in 2018.
Should have stayed with Drew Carey I reckon.
Have you seen him? He’s lost nearly 100 pounds. Plus he’s stinking rich.
Yep, reads like a parody.
They got ripped off.
Why can’t people simply go their separate ways when they break up? There were no kids, no mutual assets...
What is wrong with some people?
Or a Columbo episode.
She probably left him because Drew is a Republican he hosts the price is Right everyday now took Bob Barkers place!!! I thought Drew was married guess I was wrong!!!
It ain’t the fall that kills you, it is that sudden stop at the end.
Looks like he buys his shirts at the thrift store.
Could it have been the roids?
So far as I can tell from the story, the former boyfriend, Pursehouse, is NOT the roommate — who ran off for help?
Anyone worthy of being called a “man” would take on the attacker while yelling at his female roomate to be the one to run for help. Even if there’s a big disparity in physical ability, at least one could distract the murderer-to-be for several seconds. Preferably, of course, the defender would be armed or find SOME sort of weapon. If I die in the attempt, that’s ok - it’s part of being a man, and I don’t mean that in a “macho” way. It’s Jesus’ command, actually.
Sad isnt it.
Drew’s wife told him he needed to get something for his erection disfunction.
He did, she was a Playboy Model and her name is Harlow.
