A delivery guy called Joey Grundl, for Domino’s pizza in Waldo, Wisconsin, is being hailed as a hero for noticing a kidnapped woman’s subtle cry for help.
He delivered a pie order to the woman’s house when her ex-boyfriend, Dean Hoffman, happened to open the door. Grundl peered inside and noticed a middle-aged woman with a black eye standing behind Hoffman. She noticed her mouthing the words: “Call the police.”
“I gave him his pizza and then I noticed behind him was his girlfriend,” Grundl explained. “She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words, ‘Call the police.'”
Once Grundl returned to his delivery car, he contacted the police. Police arrived at the home,as Hoffmann blocked the door, but eventually allowed police enter the woman’s home. Hoffmann was arrested once they saw the physical bruises on the woman and she was brought to hospital for her wounds.
Hoffman had arrived at the home without her permission earlier that day in an attempt to convince her to get back into a relationship with him. When she refused that’s when he punched her in the face and tied her with a vacuum power cord.
“If you love me, you will let me go,” she plead, but he reportedly replied, “You know I can’t do that.” He also made a threat to shoot both of them with a .22 caliber firearm he kept in his car. The woman later explained to authorities she feared for her life.
“She … she knew who I was,” Grundl jokingly tweeted after the concert. “I’m thoroughly convinced Taylor gave me a cold.”
“This has been one of the most exciting weeks of my life,” Grundl said. “I’m legitimately getting emotional and I almost never get like this. But as the likely most memorable week of my entire life comes to an end … I guess I can really say … I’m doing better than I ever was.”
