A New York woman has been rescued after being held hostage using a Grubhub delivery order.

A memo sent to The Chipper Truck on Sunday asked employees to contact the police.

“Please call the police, he will call me when you get the cones delivered, please don’t make it obvious,” the 24-year-old wrote.

In a Facebook post, the cafe said the girl was rescued early that morning after a five-hour hostage situation.

“She ordered delivery through Grubhub to our restaurant and added this note. Our staff responded immediately and called the police and she was rescued,” The Chipper Truck said. “I’ve heard of this many times, but I never thought it would happen to us. Luckily we were open and able to help her.”

“A big thank you to the police for their quick response,” he wrote.

A spokesperson for the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) Office of the Deputy Commissioner for Public Information (DCPI) told TSWT News on Wednesday that authorities were alerted to a rape of the victim around 6 a.m. 20 EDT.

It’s unclear if Royal has an attorney, but NBC News reported he was also charged with another attempted rape earlier this month.
