A locksmith in Utah helped rescue a woman trapped in her home by an ex-boyfriend.
The locksmith, identified only by his first name Greg, was made aware of the woman's predicament after she wrote "911" on her hand, CNN reported Wednesday.
According to a Wasatch County Sheriff's report received by CNN, Greg noted that while he was working, he noted that the man in the house "acted suspiciously, stayed around the woman, and only allowed her to have her phone with his permission ".
Greg told Fox 13 news channel that the woman showed him her hand on more than one occasion, prompting him to call 911 after he left.

"So obviously it got some attention from me. But I was wearing a mask so I couldn't tell her or anything," Greg said. "She shows me the '911' again to make sure I saw it. And I made eye contact with her to let her know I saw it."
