Victim: "I can't even lock my door, I don't even know if they're coming back. I'm scared for my life, literally."
911 dispatcher: “They’re going to be on the way to you, but I just want you to breathe and calm down. It’s going to be OK, OK?”
911 dispatcher: "I have law enforcement in route to you and I also have medic."

I tried to call 911 and he took my phone out of my hand and was choking the s**t out of me."
911 dispatcher: "He choked you too?"
