DOVER, Pa. (WPMT) -- A York County man is facing aggravated assault and other charges after allegedly attacking a woman during a domestic incident in Dover earlier this month.
The victim was able to summon help by calling Walt Disney World under the pretense that she was booking tickets, then conveyed to the employee who answered that she was in danger, police say.
Wayne Terry Shifflett, 38, has been booked on strangulation, terroristic threats, simple assault, and harassment in addition to the aggravated assault charge in the Jan. 9 incident, which occurred on the 3300 block of Glen Hollow Drive.
WESH-TV in Orlando reports the Walt Disney World ticket booker called 911 and said she had a woman on the line who she believed needed help.
The Disney employee told police she sensed something was wrong because she heard the woman yelling "get off me" and "get away from me" at someone while they were on the phone together on Jan. 9.
The Disney employee then started asking the woman yes or no questions. She asked if the woman was actually calling to book a trip, to which the woman replied "no."
