MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A pizza delivery driver in Wisconsin is being credited with helping free a woman who was kidnapped last week and held at a home against her will.
The Sheboygan Press reports that the driver alerted authorities Thursday after delivering a pizza to a couple in a Sheboyan County home and seeing a woman, with a black eye, mouth the words “help me” and “call the police.”READ MORE: Alec Baldwin Fired Prop Gun That Killed Cinematographer, Injured Director On Movie Set (CBS News)

When officers arrived at the eastern Wisconsin home, the man who paid for the pizza, 55-year-old Dean Hoffman, let them in. He was arrested soon after.
Authorities say Hoffman entered the woman’s home earlier in the day, hit her, tied her up with a power cord and tried to persuade her to get back into a relationship with him, the newspaper reports.MORE NEWS: Data Show COVID Cases In Minnesota Schools Have Declined, But Experts Still Watching For Long-Term Trends
