According to reports, an alleged kidnapping victim used Grubhub to call for help by alerting a restaurant of her predicament and making her request to send authorities.
The incident occurred around 5 AM on Sunday when the Yonkers-based Chipper Truck Café received an order with not-so-discreet "additional instructions."
“Please call the police,” the note read, “his going to call me when u delivered come with the cones please don’t make it obvious.”
Employees of the restaurant immediately called police and asked how they should handle the situation.
“They’d seen the note on the order, and they called my husband, said ‘What should we do?’” said Alice Bermejo, who co-owns Chipper Truck cafe with her husband. “… He was like, ‘Call the police, can’t take any risks, better be safe than sorry.’”
When the order arrived in the Eastchester neighborhood of the Bronx, police descended upon the scene soon after to find a 24-year-old woman claiming to have been raped and held against her will. The suspect, 32-year-old Kemoy Royal, was taken into custody and hit with several charges including unlawful imprisonment, strangulation, rape, as well as criminal sex act and sexual abuse.
