Wayne Shiflett was charged with assault after the victim called Disney under the pretense of buying tickets, then got the employee to get help, police say.

The victim was able to summon help by calling Walt Disney World under the pretense that she was booking tickets, then conveyed to the employee who answered that she was in danger, police say.

According to Northern York County Regional Police, the Disney employee contacted York County 911 at 11:18 p. m. after becoming concerned for the victim's safety.

The caller told police that the victim initially contacted her to purchase tickets, but was heard shouting "get off me" and "get away from me" during the call.

The victim would only answer "yes" or "no" questions, the caller told police.

The Disney employee then asked the victim if she needed police assistance, and the victim replied "yes," police say.

Officers dispatched to the victim's home encountered Shiflett, who admitted there was a woman present and allowed police inside the home.

There, police say, they encountered the victim, who immediately told police she wanted Shiflett removed.

Police then separated Shiflett and the victim.

The victim told police she and Shiflett began arguing about him getting a job.

Shiflett allegedly told the victim he had recently obtained employment as a fire extinguisher salesman, and became angry when the victim told him that it was "not a realistic job" and that he needed "a real job" if he wanted to be with her, police say.

At that point, the victim told police, Shiflett attacked her, grabbing her by the throat and squeezing while allegedly threatening to kill her.

Shiflett allegedly admitted to slapping and choking the victim, police say.
