A housing officer broke her leg when she was allegedly pushed down the stairs while chasing a domestic violence suspect at the Ravenswood Houses in Astoria, according to published reports.

The unidentified female cop and her partner were following up on an abuse report around 5 p.m. Friday.

They tried to arrest the man involved in the domestic violence incident, 20-year-old Jose Pages, but he allegedly fled.

During the chase, they ended up in a stairwell where the suspect and officers began to struggle, and the woman was knocked down the stairs.

The officer was taken to the hospital with a broken leg.

Authorities took Pages into custody at the scene.

But friends and family are telling local media that Pages didn’t intentionally push the officer down the stairs.

“Jose didn’t throw the cop down the stairs,” Pages’ stepfather Jose Olivo told the New York Daily News. “Maybe she tried to grab him and the cop fell back. He’s a good kid, not a bad kid.”
