A victim’s daughter used an innovative approach to help nab the abuser who was harassing her mom by dialing 911 and ordering a pizza, unbeknownst to the accused.

56-year-old Simon Lopez, who was her mother’s boyfriend, arrived at the family’s apartment in Oregon, Ohio after which the mother and her boyfriend began arguing. Lopez was screaming at the mother and allegedly punched her in the arm.

The 38-year-old daughter seeing her mother get hit, decided to call for help. But she wanted to keep the abuser in the dark, so that he won’t get away before the police got there. That’s how she came up with the tactic to call for help under the pretense of ordering a pizza, and it worked brilliantly.

Oregon Dispatcher Tim Teneyck who had received the call, initially thought it was a wrong number, but caught on later when the daughter persisted.

“You called 911 to order a pizza?” Teneyck can be heard asking in a recording of the call which was obtained by WTVG.

“Uh Yeah,” the daughter said.

“This is the wrong number to call for a pizza,” the dispatcher replied.

The daughter then told that the dispatcher that he was not getting what she was trying to say.

“No, no ,no…. You are not understanding,” she told him.

Teneyck caught on with her at the moment and inquires if there was any medical assistance that was needed, to which she replied no. In the recording, the dispatcher can be heard advising the police to approach the house turning out the lights and siren.

Officers arrived at the apartment and arrested Lopez.

Teneyck said that in his 14 years of service he had never received a call like this, reaffirming the importance of listening to the call in his line of work.

"You see it on Facebook, but it's not something that anybody has ever been trained for. We're just trained to listen," Teneyck told 13abc. "Other dispatchers that I've talked to would not have picked up on this. They've told me they wouldn't have picked up on this."

Oregon Chief of Police Michael Navarre said it was the first time he heard someone ordering a pizza to point out domestic violence. Coming with a code to alert the dispatcher was the right to do according to him. He also praised the dispatcher for his response.

“He handled the call beautifully and it had a happy ending,” Navarre said.
