Disney World employee contacted police to help central Pa. woman in domestic violence incident


A York County man, accused of attacking a woman during a domestic violence incident earlier this month, was stopped by a Walt Disney World employee, according to media reports.

The woman called the theme park pretending to book tickets, FOX43 reported. She conveyed to the employee that she was in danger.

Wayne Terry Shifflet, 38, of Dover, was arrested after the Disney employee called York County 911 at 11:18 p.m. on Jan. 9. The employee overheard shouts of “get off me” and “get away from me” during the phone call, according to Northern York County Regional Police.

The woman answered only “yes” and “no” to questions, the caller told police. The Disney employee then asked if the woman needed police assistance, and she replied, “yes.”

Police were dispatched to the 300 block of Glen Hollow Drive in Dover.

Shifflet was charged with strangulation, terroristic threats, simple assault, and harassment in addition to aggravated assault, police said.

The woman told police that she and Shiflett had been arguing about him getting a “real job” instead of selling fire extinguishers, WGAL reported.

The woman told police that Shiflett had choked her and that she was afraid she was going to die.
