Police are praising workers at a Pizza Hut in Florida for helping to bring a hostage drama to an end.
A customer wrote a message in her online pizza order, saying she was being held hostage and needed someone to call 911.
Luckily the workers took the message seriously.
Cheryl Treadway, 25, was a regular customer at the Pizza Hut.
“The order comes through and she had edited her ticket. So on the bottom, it said ‘hostage help’ and on the top it said ‘get 9-1-1. Help,” explained Pizza Hut Manager Candy Hamilton.
The note led to the arrest of 26-year-old Ethan Nickerson.
He is accused of using a large knife to hold his girlfriend and their three children hostage.
