dial 999. now!

Police 999

You are not wasting their time. If you are frightened to ring PM one of us your address and we will ring PLEASE!

i would go as far as to say message someone you know on here with your address and get them to call on your behalf!

auntmargaret Sat 20-Apr-13 23:26:12

Please call the police. Your kids need their mum. You will all sleep more soundly when he is gone.

if you call the police NOW, or PM someone on this thread and they call the police for you - then they will come and take him away, and you should be able to prevent him coming back for as long as it takes for you to get somewhere safe.

I would offer to call for you but I'm abroad so won't be as efficient. PM Changeforthebetter or Kansas who have just offered with your address and the police will show up without him knowing, and take him away.

Please call the police before this escalates.

You can text the police I think, if you'd feel safer not speaking out loud.

RhondaJean Sat 20-Apr-13 23:30:54

Please please don't wait.

Call the police now, especially if he is threatening to take the phone off you. Please.

you can text, but unfortunately, you have to have pre-registered your phone with the emergencysms service. www.emergencysms.org.uk/
probably ought to be put on a separate thread!

Years ago I had to call the police with my attacker still in the house. I didn't speak when the call was answered so they put me straight through to police. Police asked me yes and no questions, and I made a small noise for yes. Call them now please xx

Any chance you can surreptitiously ring 999 from a landline and then leave it off the hook? The police will trace the call and turn up.

My XDHs little boy rang 999 once just to see what would happen and didn't say a word. First we knew about it was the cops on the doorstep.

You are in danger. Your kids are in danger, you need to find a way to call 999 now. It is NOT too late to text friends in an emergency. It's never too late.

Please call the police as soon as you can, if he is asleep. They will remove him from the house and put your number on a high risk list. Call Womens Aid too for help and advice

999.
while you have your phone. He will not kill you - he knows if police get invloved it will be bad for him.... - if kids are in bed the police will remove him - either arrest him, or if you dont want to make a complaint he would be moved to a friends or his parents - but out from under your feet for tonight.

has he or you been drinking?
whose house is it?

yummytummy Sun 21-Apr-13 01:59:41

Ok I rang police they just left took him straight away and just spent two hours doing statements. They were so good. Feel relieved and safe but worried what will happen tomorrow when he comes back. Am glad someone is at last protecting me thanku all for pushing me hope this is first step to freedom

yummytummy Sun 21-Apr-13 02:01:15

Is it bad to feel weirdly happy he has gone even though things are so messed up atm?

LuisGarcia Sun 21-Apr-13 02:06:43

no

starflake Sun 21-Apr-13 02:08:52

Try not let him back in now that you have him out. You can pack up his stuff and leave it somewhere for him to collect. No its not bad to feel happy. You are relived and a weight has been lifted, thats why you feel happy. Good on you for phoning them..... Dont let him back in now you have him out.

Cheddars Sun 21-Apr-13 02:10:49

Has he attacked you before Op? Don't let him back in tomorrow.

ThatVikRinA22 Sun 21-Apr-13 02:11:47

whose name is the house in OP?

its unlikely that he will be prevented from returning if this is the first offence if the house is in his name or joint names - on monday get a solicitors appointment. Stay strong.
if the house is in your name then you can refuse him entry and call police again if he starts being a prick.

yummytummy Sun 21-Apr-13 02:19:29

House is in joint names. They assured me he would be escorted back and not left to turn up full of anger. They will ring in am . Am still thinking wtf have I done and random stuff we were meant to take kids swimming in am what do I tell them.?

ThatVikRinA22 Sun 21-Apr-13 02:25:20

he will calm down hopefully over night - he will be in a cell to stew so he can see the consequences of his anger and hopefully will shock him.

but use this momentum to get some help before this gets worse.
solicitor appt asap. dont tell him.
ring womens aid for advice.
the police should have details of local agencies that might be able to help - in our force we pass all domestic violence incidents on to the DV team who phone with follow up advice.

how old are teh kids?
just tell them daddy was being naughty so he had to go and stay at another house for the night in case he woke them up. can you still take them swimming on your own?
do you have any family support near by? might be an idea if you do to have someone around with you tomorrow....are you worried about how he will react when he gets back?

if he starts again - 999. police will be there within minutes if a DV is taking place when you phone.

yonisparechangemr Sun 21-Apr-13 02:37:23

Op confused don't let him back in for all the gold in the world, read your first post and ask yourself if you would ever let Dc take their partners back after that? (when they are old enough!)
