By Fox News. A Dominos employee served more than just pizza when he noticed a woman mouthing “help me” when he delivered a pie to her Wisconsin home.
Dean Hoffmann, 55, allegedly came into his ex-girlfriend’s home in Sheboygan County uninvited last week, holding her hostage and beating her, WITI-TV reported.
While in the home, police said Hoffmann shoved the unnamed victim, ripped her clothing, took her phone and punched her in the face, giving her a black eye and bloody nose. At one point, Hoffmann also allegedly tied the victim’s hands and feet together with a chord and shoved a towel into her mouth, according to WITI. . .
But the victim was saved when a Domino’s delivery man brought pizza to the house that Hoffmann had ordered Thursday. When he was paying, the unidentified driver noticed the visibly injured woman mouth “help me” and “call the police,” the Sheboygan Press reported.

Woman With Black Eye Mouths ‘Help Me’ to Pizza Delivery Man; Ex-Boyfriend Arrested
By Fox 6. A 55-year-old Grafton man is facing several counts of domestic abuse after allegedly entering his ex-girlfriend’s house uninvited, where he’s alleged to have beaten and tied her up. A pizza delivery man alerted police when the woman mouthed the words “help me” to him.
“It’s kind of scary. Gave him his pizza, and noticed behind him was his girlfriend. She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words ‘call police,'” said Joey Grundl, the pizza delivery driver who helped the woman in this case. . .
According to a criminal complaint, the victim — a 57-year-old woman — started dating Hoffmann in 2016 and they lived together until August of 2018. After their breakup, the woman moved to a home near 2nd and Lyndon.
Investigators say around 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27 Hoffmann entered her home without knocking and without her permission. She told Hoffmann to leave and grabbed her phone to call police. As she picked up her phone, Hoffmann allegedly ripped the phone out of her hands, grabbed her by the waist and dragged her toward steps that led upstairs.
The complaint says Hoffmann shoved the victim, causing her to fall with her back on the steps. The complaint says Hoffmann pulled her hair, ripped her shirt and continued to try and get the woman up the stairs. In an attempt to get away, the woman told investigators she hit Hoffmann in the groin. Hoffmann then punched her in the face, giving her a black eye and bloody nose.
