Some quick thinking employees at a Yonkers café may have helped save a woman's life.
Employees at Chipper Truck Café received an order via Grubhub around 5 a.m. Sunday morning.
The order was for an Irish breakfast sandwich and a cheeseburger. There was also a note that read: "Please call police, his going to call me when u delivered come with the cones please don't make it obvious."
Even though the note had grammatical mistakes, employees did not want to take any chances. They jumped into action and called 911 to alert police.
The customer/victim was a 24-year-old woman who had been allegedly raped at knifepoint and held against her will in a house on Pratt Avenue in the Bronx.
"A detective had called and said there had been an arrest made and that the girl was safe, and we were like, we're so happy…so happy," said Chipper Truck Cafe co-owner Alice Bermejo.
According to NYPD investigators, 32-year-old Kemoy Royal had been using a dating app to find women and had attempted the same attack just a week before on a 26-year-old woman who was able to escape.
Royal is now facing a slew of charges for both cases including rape, attempted rape, strangulation, criminal use of a weapon. and more.
