Finally, the woman managed to convince Floyd she needed to take their dog to the veterinarian, though he only did so while accompanying her with a gun, sheriffs said.
A Florida man was arrested last week for allegedly battering his girlfriend then holding her captive at gunpoint for two days.
She said her boyfriend Jeremy Floyd, 39, repeatedly hit her that night, and threatened her at gunpoint. Even so, the victim managed to pass her note along to the vet staff, deputies said.
"Call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me", the note read.
A woman escaped Friday from her violent, gun-wielding boyfriend, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
On the drive to the vet, Floyd allegedly pointed the gun at his girlfriend, threatening to kill her and her family.
The woman allegedly slipped this note to a staff member in a bid to escape her boyfriend who she claims held her at gunpoint. Please don't let him know, ' according to ABC News.
The woman was taken to DeLand Florida Hospital where she was treated for a head wound, black eye, bruised arms and legs and scratches on her hands and fingers. When she woke up on Friday, she convinced Floyd to take the dog to the vet.
The worker quietly alerted the authorities, who showed up, seized the gun, and cuffed Floyd, officials said.
At the victim's home, deputies found two bullet holes in a hallway, which passed through drywall and into another room.
Floyd remains in custody at Indian Lake Jail on $57,000 bail as of Sunday morning, according to Volusia County records obtained by Law&Crime.
Floyd was arrested on domestic violence charges.
The assault on the woman, whose name is withheld because she's a victim of domestic violence, began Wednesday.
