On Friday afternoon, a woman who had allegedly been physically abused and was being held at gunpoint covertly handed a note to employees at her veterinarian’s office during a visit for her dog and asked them to notify the authorities.

Carolyn Reichle, and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Jeremy Floyd, share a home together in Volusia County.

He allegedly held her under threat for two days while she recovered in bed from the beating.
