Woman Leaves ‘Help Note’ at South Carolina Food Lion Cash Register


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and leaders around the world are taking the opportunity to raise awareness.

On Thursday afternoon, a woman was shopping at a Clover Food Lion where she left a note for a cashier saying she was concerned the man she was with would harm her, according to FOX 46 Charlotte.

The cashier and the management team have contacted authorities and the York County Sheriff’s Office has issued an alert with the woman’s photo on Twitter.

The woman has been found safe and sound and investigators say the case has been closed, but Safe Space’s executive director says she wants people to know they have options if they are in an abusive relationship .

“The best thing to do is call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. That number is 1-800-799-SAFE, ”said Monica Kearney.

Kearney says one in four women and one in seven men experience domestic violence.

She says the escape period is the most dangerous time.

“The more a victim begins to get help and resources, the more often the abuser will try to do more harm.”

For those in the Kansas City area who don’t feel safe, they can call the domestic violence hotline at 816-468-5463.

This phone is answered 24 hours a day, and you can get free information on housing, financial assistance, medical help, counseling and shelters.
