Taped-up robbery victim dialed 911 with nose

A clerk at a Dollar General Store in Athens, Tennessee who was duct-taped to a display by a robber, knocked a phone handset off the hook with her foot and dialed 911 using her nose.

Detective Heith Willis said the clerk had just opened the store Saturday when a man came in, told her he had a gun and ordered her to open the safe. Willis said the man grabbed a money bag and some cash, then taped the clerk and left. Police found the woman still taped but unharmed.

“This one was unusual,” Detectives Willis said. (info from Chattanooga Times Free Press)
