A Florida woman escaped the clutches of her abusive, gun-toting boyfriend by passing a note to an unlikely rescuer - a worker at her dog's veterinary office, authorities said.

A woman managed to slip her dog's veterinarian a note saying she was being held captive by her armed boyfriend on Friday, May 25, 2018.

She passed a note to staff members at the hospital, which read, "Call the cops".

On the ride over, Floyd threatened to kill Reichle and her family, authorities said. At one point, they struggled over a handgun that fired inside the house.

Police were summoned to the animal hospital where they arrested Floyd. He insisted on going with her and threatened her again with a gun on the drive there. Floyd is a convicted felon, according to the sheriff's office.

According to the sheriff's office, Floyd pointed the gun at her in the vehicle and threatened to kill her and her family.

The report said Floyd beat the woman Wednesday and refused to let her leave their home. "Please don't let him know", the hand-written note said, according to ABC news.

Floyd was charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault with a firearm, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, among other chargers. After that, they brought her home, where they discovered two bullet holes in a hallway. Seems the boyfriend, convicted felon Jeremy Floyd, was standing beside her with a concealed and loaded weapon.

Deputies took Reichle to Florida Hospital DeLand where she was treated for her injuries, which included a head injury, a black eye and bruised arms.

Officers detained Floyd and contacted the Volusia County Sheriff's Office because it was domestic violence case.
