A woman who was told to call her boyfriend during a sexual assault
instead contacted police – a decision that authorities say helped
officers track down the suspect and stop the attack.
Robert
Giles, 27, was charged in connection with Monday’s incident, according
to a release from police in Clayton County, Georgia, US.
Authorities believe Giles wanted his victim’s boyfriend to listen as he attacked her, the release states.
Instead
of calling her boyfriend, police say the woman called 911, where an
emergency dispatcher managed to play the part. The dispatcher pretended
that the woman had done as she was told, and sent police to the scene,
WSB-TV reported.

“(It was) the most extreme call of my career,” the 911 operator, Deonte Smith, told WSB-TV.
Officers
who responded were able to “quickly place Giles under arrest,”
according to the release. Giles was stopped “mid-act,” Sgt. Ashanti
Marbury told The Washington Post in an email.
“It was quick thinking on his behalf. In fact, (it) might have saved her life,” Clayton County Police Maj. Joe Woodall told WSB.
Smith, a senior Clayton County 911 operator, told WSB that he’d like to get in touch with the victim from the case.
“I would like to meet you in person. I really want to,” he said. “I’m thankful for your quick thinking.”
The station reports:
“He also says she got some help from above because if she had called a few seconds later, he would have been on break.
“‘Honestly
I’d say divine intervention,’ Smith said. ‘I was the only guy on the
floor that night. The other guy we had had just left not too long before
the call came in.'”
Giles faces rape, obstruction and false
imprisonment charges, according to the release. A lawyer has not yet
been assigned to the case, the public defender’s office said Wednesday.
