Not all heroes at Disney World wear costumes.
A vigilant Disney World ticket saleswoman helped a Pennsylvania woman escape her abusive partner by directing law enforcement to her home after a troubling phone call, according to Harrisburg affiliate FOX43.
The woman called the theme park under the pretense of booking tickets, then signaled to the employee on the phone that she was in danger.
During the course of the Jan 9. call, the worker heard the woman telling someone to “get off me” and “get away,” the local station reports.
The Disney worker then started asking the victim discreet “yes” or “no” questions to investigate the nature of the situation.
She first asked if the woman was actually calling to book a trip, to which the caller responded “no.”
The worker followed up by asking the woman if someone was hurting her and she needed police sent to her home. The caller answered “yes,” according to FOX43.
The Disney employee called the cops, who responded to the Dover, Penn. home and arrested Wayne Terry Shiflett, 38, on charges of strangulation, terrorist threats, harassment and aggravated assault.
The victim told officers Shiflett had grabbed her throat, choked her and threatened to kill her, and she displayed visible signs of the attack, according to the report.
It was the third time that Shiflett had allegedly beaten up the woman, who reportedly told police she was scared for her life.
The suspect was apparently enraged when the abused woman told him that his gig as a fire extinguisher salesman was not a “real job,” the report said.
Shiflett, who also had an outstanding warrant for for theft, was removed from the home and taken to York County Jail.
