The incident took place in Florida where the woman being held hostage found the power inside to go for a risky step.
A mom of three children, Cheryl Treadway, was held hostage by herlover armed with the knife. She managed to convince the criminal to let her use the mobile phone to order a pizza via an online service. The authorities said that the woman managed to write the help message in the “Comments” section of the order and she probably saved 4 lives by this action.
Upon the arrival of the order, employees of the Pizza Hut quickly identified the customer as Cheryl was their regular client. The help message quickly alarmed everyone and the authorities were sent to Cheryl’s home.
We’ve never seen anything like this before
– said the manager of Pizza Hut.
When the authorities arrived, Cheryl came out to them, carrying a baby and she was immediately taken to the safe place where she said that her armed boyfriend and two children still remain at the house. After 20 minutes of negotiations, Cheryl’s ex-boyfriend came out and the rest of the children were rescued unharmed.
The authorities reported that the pair had been arguing all day. And when it was time for Cheryl to pick her children out of school he wouldn’t let her do this on her own, but went to school with her instead. When they were back home, she convinced her ex to order a pizza, and when she was done, he snapped the device out of her.
Her 26-year-old ex-boyfriend was charged with compulsory imprisonment and knife attack. The court set the bail for the jailed man at $45,000, but it still remains unclear if the suspect has an attorney or not.
