A KFC worker helped rescue a woman who was being held captive by her boyfriend after she left him a message asking for help.
The woman was with her attacker Diego Glay, 23, at the fast food restaurant in the Hickory Hill neighborhood of Memphis around 5 p.m. Monday night.
The clerk called police shortly after and was able to describe both the victim and Glay, and the couple were soon tracked down.
After a brief police pursuit on foot, Glay was arrested and later charged with kidnapping and evading arrest.
According to Fox 13 News, a report said the victim told police that she and Glay had been in a relationship, but that he held her against her will with physical attacks and threats while armed with a pistol.

She said Glay physically abused her by slapping her in the face as she tried to leave.
She told officers he took her phone and made sure she kept an eye on him for days, the affidavit said.
According to officials, Glay said he and the victim lived in cheap, random hotels around the city.
He was held on $35,000 bail and was due to appear in court yesterday. It was not clear if he had filed a plea.
Last year a woman allegedly held captive for months by her ex-boyfriend was rescued after leaving SOS notes in two public toilets.
The woman claimed the man threatened to kill her and her children if she tried to leave but managed to leave the notes when they went out in public together.
Her first letter calling for help was found hanging from a mirror at a Walmart supermarket in the women’s restroom in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, WPXI reported.
Staff turned the note over to police and he was eventually arrested and charged with sexual assault, strangling and unlawful restraint.
