Woman held captive slips note to veterinary employee


A Florida woman who was allegedly beaten and threatened at gunpoint by her boyfriend turned the tables on him.

It was Friday when the victim reportedly convinced Floyd to bring their dog to the hospital. She said her boyfriend Jeremy Floyd, 39, repeatedly hit her that night, and threatened her at gunpoint.

When they arrived at DeLand Animal Hospital, the 28-year-old Reichle covertly slipped a handwritten note to a worker. She told police she tried to get the gun away from him and during the struggle the weapon went off twice. The case was then handed to Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Williams said the "visibly injured" woman was taken to a hospital to be treated for a head injury, black eye and bruised arm. "Please don't let him know", the hand-written note said, according to ABC news.

At the veterinary hospital, the woman managed to alert authorities by slipping a note to a vet staff member that said: "Call the cops".

Police said the victim was beaten Wednesday by Jeremy Floyd, 39, who is her live-in boyfriend.

Volusia County sheriff deputies found two bullet holes in a hallway, according to local NBC affiliate WESH-2.

Officers detained Floyd and contacted the Volusia County Sheriff's Office because it was domestic violence case.

Floyd allegedly only agreed to travel to the vets accompanied with a gun, which he pointed at his girlfriend before threatening to kill her and her family while on the journey there.

Floyd was arrested on 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.
