Woman Slips Note To Stranger, Begging Them To Call The Police

Carolyn Reichle was rescued after she left a note with a worker to call the police.

DeLand, FL – A woman was saved by police after she slipped a note to a staff member at an animal hospital.

WOFL-TV identified the woman as Carolyn Reichle.

Police said Jeremy Floyd beat Reichle on May 23 and threatened her with a gun and kept her locked in the house for two days.

On May 25, police said Reichle talked her boyfriend into letting her take their dog to the vet.

Floyd went, too, and took his loaded pistol with him, according to WOFL.

Reichle handed a note to staff members, according to WOFL. That note read: “Call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun. Please don’t let him know!”

Police arrived shortly after and arrested Floyd.

Floyd, 39, faces charges of 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, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Police said that Reichle and Floyd had a fight Wednesday.

Floyd beat Reichle and pointed a gun at her. The couple fought in a struggle for the gun and two shots were fired.

The bullets passed through a wall and no one was injured, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Reichle had spent all Thursday in bed with a head injury.

During the drive to the veterinarian, Floyd allegedly pointed the handgun at Reichle and threatened to kill her and her family, according to police.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Laura Williams said that Reichle was visibly injured and was taken to the hospital.

She was treated for a head injury, a black eye and a bruised arm.

Floyd is being held at the Volusia County Jail with no bond.

I am sure some liberal judge will give him zero time and probation. Seems to happen a lot.


He definitely deserves maximum jail time with NO plea bargains. I hope Carolyn gets the help she needs to avoid abusive relationships. How is the dog??


Kill him! oh so slowly, make sure he feels every single part of his body burn! or, just set him on fire! and yes! this IS my out loud voice. You Go GIRL! You are one very smart and brave lady! Kudos


Hang him up by his pecker and let people beat him like a pinata!!
