Police were able to rescue a woman and her three year-old child after a quick thinking UPS driver detected the desperate woman’s message for help. The event happened on Tuesday, when a UPS driver came by to pick up a package at a residence in Robertsville, Missouri. When the driver knocked on the door, the woman answered it and handed over a package with the words ‘Call 911’ on it.
The UPS driver noticed the written SOS and notified the police, who sent a SWAT team to clear the residence. Inside, they found a woman and her 33 year-old husband James Tyler Jordan, holding her hostage. SWAT apprehended him and took him into custody. Their three year-old child had also been locked in a bedroom for the past 15 hours without any food, but was otherwise okay.
The woman told police that her husband forbade her from leaving the home. While she was being treated as a prisoner, she claimed her husband punched her, slapped her and sexually assaulted her.
When the UPS driver came by the house, he was behind her with his gun leveled, but she managed to write the ‘Call 911’ plea without tipping him off.
Both police and UPS extolled the driver for his part in saving the woman and her baby.
Sgt. T.J. Wild spoke with the media: ‘He was a huge help,’ referring to the driver.
UPS also shared in a statement, ‘We are grateful this UPS driver with more than a decade of service followed protocol when he saw a customer in distress and contacted authorities after he saw her message to contact 9-1-1, our drivers are very familiar with their routes, and are trained to be aware of their surroundings and respond to requests for assistance.’
For all his crimes, Jordan has been charged with domestic assault, sodomy without consent, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. Seems fair to me.
