An observant Walt Disney World Cast Member was able to help a Pennsylvania woman who called pretending to buy theme park tickets but was really trying to get away from her abusive boyfriend.
According to a report from the Northern York County Regional Police Department, a Disney World Cast Member called 911 and said she had a woman on the line who she believed needed assistance.
The Disney World Cast Member told police she sensed something was wrong because she heard the woman shouting “get off me” and “get away from me” at someone while they were on the phone together on the 9th January, 2021.
She then started asking the woman yes or no questions. The Disney World Cast Member asked if the woman was actually calling to book a trip, to which the woman replied “no.”
“She then asked [the woman] if she needed law enforcement to [come to] her home and she stated ‘yes’,” the reported stated.
The Disney World Cast Member also asked the woman if someone was hurting her, anda the woman said “yes.”
Police arrived at the home and discovered that the woman and her boyfriend had been arguing. The woman told police that she and 38-year-old Wayne Shiflett had been arguing about him getting a “real job” instead of selling fire extinguishers.
The woman told police that Shiflett had choked her, and that she was afraid she was going to die. Shiflett was arrested and charged with strangulation, terroistic threats with intent to terrorize another and simple assault.
