The greatest asset a woman in captivity has as route to freedom is thinking out of the box and guile.
This was amply demonstrated by a Florida woman held captive by an abusive boyfriend who holds a gun, had allegedly held her captive for two days and “repeatedly battered her on Wednesday night, threatened her at gunpoint, and physically prevented her from leaving their home” , according to what she told the police.
What she did was pretend that all was cool, and quietly convince her boyfriend,
Floyd she needed to take their dog to the veterinarian, though he only did so while accompanying her with a gun, sheriffs said. On the way to DeLand Animal Hospital, the sheriff’s office said Floyd pointed the gun at her and threatened to kill her and her family.
Hidden on her was a note she had written asking for police intervention and was able to slip an employee the note once she arrived at the veterinarian’s office, reading,
“Call the cops, my boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun. Please don’t let him know.”
The note worked, for officers from the DeLand Police Department came and arrested the man, identified as 39-year-old Jeremy Floyd. Floyd is a convicted felon, according to the sheriff’s office.
They also visited the couple’s home, where the domestic violence incidents occurred. Floyd is charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and simple battery.
He is being held at Volusia County Branch Jail without bail.
All thanks to the dog’s veterinarian who discreetly carried out the instructions on the note and saved the lady.
