TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – In Taipei, a 48 year old woman, surnamed Hseih (謝), awoke from bed early Friday morning around 1:00 a.m. shocked to hear a strange noise in her home. She immediately took to social media to alert her friends and family that she may be in danger.

“There’s a thief in my home! What should I do?” she frantically posted to Facebook. Not wanting to alert the intruder to her position, she decided against making a phone call to the police which might be overheard.

Instead she asked her friends to contact the police on her behalf while she hid from any potential danger in her bedroom.

Her friends answered her call providing the the first of three reports to local police at approximately 1:40 a.m. Hseih kept her worried online audience informed of how the situation was developing while she nervously awaited police from Taipei City’s Songshan branch to arrive.    [FULL  STORY]
