24-year-old woman held hostage by rapist uses Grubhub order to alert police

A rape victim who was held hostage in a New York City home managed to alert police by using her Grubhub app.

New York’s Chipper Truck Cafe in Yonkers received an order for a breakfast sandwich and a burger at about 5 a.m. on Sunday, according to the NYPD. In the “additional instructions” field, there was the following note: “Please call the police his going to call me when u delivered come with the cones please don’t make it obvious.” While the message might not have been grammatically correct, the victim got her point across: “She was basically saying to bring the police with the delivery,” says cafe worker Alice Bermejo.

Police officers responded and found that the 24-year-old victim had been raped and was being held against her will by a man she’d met on the Internet, the NYPD reports. Kemoy Royal, 32, was taken into custody and charged with rape, unlawful imprisonment, strangulation, criminal sex act and sexual abuse, police say.
