The Question Club
I work the night shift at a hotel. I just a really creepy phone call at work. This dude called 3 times in a row, very obviously drunk/on drugs/something. He was looking for someone whom he said was staying with us, but no one was here by that name. No matter how many times I told him that, he kept persisting.|
Then he got all weird and pervy and started asking me lewd questions. At that point, I hung up on him, figuring it was just a freak prank calling, which happens from time-to-time.
But he called back.
In the background, I heard a woman screaming. I asked him if everything was ok, and at first he told me it was the TV, but then he kept telling the woman, who was supposedly the television, to "Shut the fuck up." I don't know about you, but I don't tell my TV to shut up.
I know the obvious thing to do here is report it to the police. But amazingly, we don't have any kind of caller-id type system and all I have is the gut feeling that this guy was not talking to the television, there was a woman in the room with him and she was obviously in distress.
Can the police do anything? Is there a way they can track the phone call even though we don't have any kind of call-logger?
ETA: OK! I reported it. They said there's nothing they can do, but they took the report anyway. Still, maybe someone will report a crime tomorrow and make this information useful in some way. I feel better, at least I did everything I could.
