She saved herself ordering pizza online. This may seem crazy, but it is what happened to a woman in Florida. Her boyfriend locked her and her child at home and menaced them with a knife. She had to stay in the house, she could not hear from anybody or her boyfriend would have used his knife.
Cheryl Treadway convinced her boyfriend to use her mobile to order pizza and she left a message on the ‘comment’ field. She asked for help to Pizza Hut requesting to send the police to her house.
Fortunately, clerks did not think it was a joke and called the officers; once they got home in Avon Park, they freed the woman and her child.
They arrested the man and found two more children in the house, but they are safe. According to the officers, the man sequestered his girlfriend in the morning after they had a fight; a whole day went by before she was able to ask for help.
