A terrified man jumped from his second-floor balcony after a woman he refused to have sex with opened fire on him.

Anneisha Speed, 19, allegedly pulled a gun on the man in his flat and fired a round of shots into a wall after he refused to romp with her.

The pair had spent most of the day together, police said.

The unnamed man said Speed asked him to perform oral sex on her moments after they arrived in his flat.

But when he declined his date pulled out a .40 handgun and aimed it at him, he told investigators in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

He fled to his balcony before leaping to the ground as another shot was fired in his direction, police files said.

Officers found Speed outside the flat after the man called them.
