Woman calls police, ‘orders pizza’ to report abusive partner

A few years ago, a story went viral about an American woman who called police to report her abusive partner while pretending to order pizza — as she could not get away from him for long enough to make the call openly.

Now, an Israeli woman, possibly inspired by that story, has done the same, dialing 100 and giving the dispatcher the same story.

It is not clear whether the call was edited, but in the recording provided by police, the dispatcher seems to immediately understand, asking the woman: “Are you being threatened?”

“Yes,” the woman answers. “I’m with a friend.”

After getting the woman’s address, the dispatcher asks if the person threatening her is there.

“Yes yes, we want olives and corn,” the woman answers.

“Is he armed?” the dispatcher asks.

“No, we don’t want coke, we’ve got some at home.”

“If there’s someone beside you, add another topping.”

“I’ll also take mushrooms.”

Another dispatcher then tells the woman: “Keep yourself safe, we’re on our way.”

Police say officers arrived at the address within minutes and arrested a suspect, a 30-year-old man who has been arrested on suspicion of assault and making threats.

Listen to the call in Hebrew below.
