Woman Calls 911 to ‘Order Pizza’ and Escapes Her Abuser

Woman Calls 911 to ‘Order Pizza’ and Escapes Her Abuser

Emergency services received a phone call from a woman who asked to order a pizza, but it was code for help

That woman exhibited some quick thinking skills.

It started out as a possible prank phone call, but luckily, one critically-thinking 911 operator was able to help. On a recent Reddit thread, a 911 dispatcher recalled an incident in which he received a call from a woman who seemed to want to place an order for a pizza. The woman was actually a victim of domestic violence, and was too afraid to call for help without disguising it.

The conversation was as follows:

“Ma’am, you’ve reached 911”

“Yeah, I know. Can I have a large with half pepperoni, half mushroom and peppers?”

“Ummm…. I’m sorry, you know you’ve called 911 right?”

“Yeah, do you know how long it will be?”

“Ok, Ma’am, is everything ok over there? Do you have an emergency?”

“Yes, I do.”

“..And you can’t talk about it because there’s someone in the room with you?”

“Yes, that’s correct. Do you know how long it will be?”

“I have an officer about a mile from your location.”

The former 911 dispatcher is named Keith Weisinger, and the incident in question happened 10 years ago.

“I worked the graveyard shift, 6 p.m. – 6 a.m., and I remember this call being pretty late — close to midnight,” Weisinger told Buzzfeed. “I remember feeling relieved we had an officer close by who could respond quickly,” he added. Weisinger said he never found out what happened to the woman in question after the call.

Disney World ticket booker helps woman escape domestic violence, police say

A Disney World ticket booker helped a Pennsylvania woman escape domestic violence, police say.

The Northern York County Regional Police Department in Pennsylvania said the booker could hear the woman who had called yelling, “get off me” and “get away from me,” NBC Orlando affiliate WESH reported.

The booker asked the woman if she was calling because she needed a trip, and she replied that she wasn’t. When the booker asked the woman if she needed help, the woman replied that she did, according to WESH.

Northern York County police, who could not be immediately be reached Sunday, arrived to her home on January 9.

The woman told police that she was arguing with boyfriend, Wayne Shiflett, about his employment status.

WESH reports the woman said Shiflett, 38, choked her and she feared for her life.

Records show Shiflett, who was charged with strangulation, terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another and simple assault, remained in York County Jail on Sunday. It was not immediately clear whether he had representation.

Law enforcement authorities and experts have warned against trying to reach 911 through a third party or coded language like the “pizza order,” saying some people might be misinterpreted. Some departments now offer the ability to text “911” for those who find themselves in a situation where they are fearful of making a call.
