Texas woman escapes kidnapper after slipping note to Domino's Pizza employee
A Texas woman who was allegedly kidnapped and abused by her husband managed to escape after slipping a note to a Domino's Pizza employee.
The 32-year-old woman was bound and gagged when police found her Tuesday morning, according to the El Paso Times. It's unknown how long she was allegedly being held against her will.
The previous evening, the woman had visited a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Anthony, Texas, with her husband. It was there that she managed to slip the letter to an employee behind the counter explaining that she was being abused and held against her will.
"[Her husband] allowed her to go inside to pick up the pizza and she was able to pass the information to the clerk," Anthony Police Chief Carlos Enriquez told the El Paso Times.
Domino's employees quickly called the police, who arrived at the restaurant to investigate further. Officers discovered from there that the woman lived in nearby Chamberino, N.M.
They arrived at her home around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, Enriquez told the El Paso Times. That's where they found the woman bound, gagged and beaten in one of the rooms. She was crying and thankful to be rescued, Enriquez said.
The woman's husband, 22-year-old Robert Dominguez, was taken into custody and charged with domestic violence.
