Text Leads to Rescue of Woman Held in Mifflin Twp. Home
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- A text from California led police to storm a Mifflin Township home in order to rescue a woman who was being held against her will.
Police entered the Parkwood Ave. home on Tuesday afternoon after a woman inside the house texted her relative in California to ask for help.
"Don't text back or call," the message read. "Just please get grandpa here to save me."
Neighbors captured cell phone video of the ensuing police operation, during which officers rescued the woman and apprehended Andre Ashley, who is charged with domestic violence and assault.
Ashley may also face charges related to the alleged mistreatment of at least one dog. He is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
