A woman was rescued from a hostage situation after she sent a note to a local restaurant through a GrubHub order asking them to call the police.

The Chipper Truck Cafe in Yonkers, New York, wrote on their Facebook page that they helped to save a woman from a five-hour hostage situation Wednesday morning at 5 a.m. 

“She ordered a delivery through Grubhub to our restaurant and added this note,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook, accompanied by a photo of the note she wrote.

“Please call the police his going to call me when u delivered come with the cones please don’t make it obvious,” the woman wrote in the “Additional Instructions” section of her order to The Chipper Truck.

 

CBS News reported that the victim had ordered an Irish breakfast sandwich and a cheeseburger to accompany her alarming note. 

The Chipper Truck Cafe wrote “our staff responded immediately and called the police and she got saved.”

A spokesperson for the NYPD said officers arrived to help the woman at 6:20 a.m. 

Police said a 32-year-old man was arrested at 6:27 a.m. and charged with rape, strangulation, criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment, menacing, assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and sexual abuse, a spokesperson for the NYPD confirmed to Insider. 

The 24-year-old victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries, CBS News reported. 

The Chipper Truck Cafe did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. 

Owner Alice Bermejo told CBS News she is “proud” that her staff did the right thing by calling the police and potentially saved a life. 

In response, GrubHub has offered the restaurant owners Alicia and Alice Bermejo $5,000 to invest in their business “as a way of recognizing her and Alicia for their quick thinking,” a statement from GrubHub shared with Insider said.
