Woman Uses Toes To Type For Help In Georgia

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA -- Police say an Atlanta woman tied to her bed by an armed burglar was freed by police after she used her toes to type a message to her boyfriend.

Atlanta police Capt. Van Hobbs says the woman's boyfriend called 911 Tuesday morning to say she told him she'd been bound since midnight.

Hobbs says the 39-year-old woman told police the intruder, who had a handgun and wore a ski mask, took her around the house and went through her belongings, then bound her.

The victim, Amy Windom , convinced the thief to leave her computer, explaining that it was a work-issued laptop that would be traced if stolen.

She used her feet to open the laptop, then typed an instant message to her boyfriend, who called the police.

Hobbs says the intruder stole the victim's car.
