Grubhub’s note is sent to a New York cafe where a woman asks to “call the police” leads to the rescue of a captive

Quick-thinking workers at a New York cafe rescued a kidnapped woman Sunday from an accused serial rapist after she sent a message via the GrubHub delivery app to call the police.

Staff at The Chipper Truck Cafe in Yonkers sensed something was wrong when they received a skewed order for an Irish breakfast and beef burger at 5:50 a.m. on June 19.

“Please call the police, they will call me when you deliver the cones, please do not elaborate,” read the message to the driver.

Fearing someone was in trouble, café workers called the owner and asked what they should do, according to Alicia Bermejo, the owner’s 20-year-old daughter.

They were, like, is this a joke? So they called my dad and he said to call the police. “Safe is better than regret,” she said.

This was no joke, according to the criminal complaint against Kimwe Royal, 33, who appears to have been on a sexual frenzy, allegedly abducting and sexually assaulting two women in several weeks.

Royal is accused of meeting women on dating apps and then luring them back to his apartment where he holds them with death threats and then imposes himself on them.

Police responded to 3719 Pratt Street in the Bronx after a 911 call from Yonkers Cafe and found the 24-year-old victim whom Royal had held against her will.

She said they met via a dating app and went back to his apartment, but she didn’t feel comfortable and tried to leave.

She said that when Royal allegedly grabbed her by the throat and began strangling her.

She begged him not to kill her, according to the complaint, and told him he could rape her if he didn’t kill her.

He told her she would die if she didn’t do what he ordered, and held a knife to her throat, according to a criminal complaint. When she tried to call the police, he took her phone away from her.

Only when she asked for food was she allowed to get her phone back and was she able to send a cry for help to The Chipper Truck Cafe.

He told police he believed she wanted to have sex with him, according to Bronx prosecutors.

Royal was arrested around 6:30 a.m. when the food delivery door opened.

He was charged with 27 counts of sexual assault and kidnapping, including predatory rape and other crimes.

The lawyer for the accused rapist, Zaim Bizmoun, could not be reached for comment.

After his arrest on June 19, police discovered that there was a second victim, a 26-year-old woman who also accused Royal of sexual assault.

During that June 14 attack, he claimed during an appointment that he had to retrieve something from his apartment and once the woman entered, he was not allowed to leave, prosecutors charged.

He attacked and bit her in the chest until she bled, according to the criminal case. Authorities said the victim saw knives all over his apartment.

Royal strangled the victim and at one point put his own organs in her food.

Royal told the police that he believed his victim was playing with him “cat and mouse” and that he forced himself on her “because he thought she was like women”.

He was also charged with attempted rape and sexual assault in that case.

But the cafe workers are glad they helped catch him.

“Honestly, I’m glad he got off the streets,” Bermejo said. ‘I feel terrified. I hope no one else does anything like this, but this might just be wishful thinking.
