Ohio 911 Caller Signals Domestic Violence By Ordering 'Pizza' (Audio)

A woman in Oregon, Ohio, who called 911 and said she wanted to order a pizza on November 13, was actually using code and needed help in a domestic violence situation, according to reports.

The 911 dispatcher, named in reports as Tim Teneyck, is being lauded for sharp thinking after he eventually recognized that the caller was aware she was calling 911 and was trying to use code to avoid being overheard.

“You called 911 to order a pizza?” Teneyck says in this audio.

“Uh, yeah. Apartment [redacted],” says the woman on the line.

“This is the wrong number to call for a pizza,” Teneyck replies.

“No no no no no no no no, you’re not understanding,” says the woman.

“I’m getting you now,” says Teneyck, cutting the woman off. “I got it. What apartment?”

WRCB reported that the woman on the line was calling in for her mother, whose boyfriend was drunk and was allegedly pushing and punching her.
