got arrested instead. marcus solis of wabc reports. >> in complete shock but grateful. >> reporter: they say no good deed goes unpunished, but that's not the case at the chipper truck cafe. its owners are being rewarded with $5,000 from the food delivery service grubhub. >> they thanked us for what we did, and thanks for paying attention to the notes. and just as their appreciation, they wanted to give us a reward. >> reporter: ah, yes, the infamous note that came into the eatery early sunday morning. along with the order were the instructions "please call the police," sent by a woman who was being held against her will in an apartment in the bronx. this is video from the restaurant showing the moment bermejo's daughter and another worker see the woman's desperate plea. police were called, and a short time later, 32-year-old kemoy royal was arrested. he's facing charges of rape, unlawful imprisonment, and other counts. he's also been linked to an
unrelated attempted sexual assault days earlier. bermejo says on sunday, a reward was the last thing on their minds. >> it's shocking to us. shocking. and we're so grateful that he's caught, so grateful, and that the girl is okay. >> reporter: the money will come in handy. like most restaurants, things weren't so chipper for the cafe during the pandemic, which had to let their delivery driver go to cut costs. the owners turned to services like uber eats and doordash and, as of a couple of months ago, grubhub. >> now my head is in a brain fog, so i don't know. we can definitely use it. with everything that happened with the pandemic and everything, we definitely -- it will go to good use. >> the 32-year-old suspect is being held on $200,000 bond. meantime, the kudos keep coming. the yonkers city council also planning to honor the cafe's owners. in yonkers, channel 7, eye witness news. >> there was so much quick thinking there, not just by the victim but by the restaurant to not think this was some sort of joke, you know, when you add
delivery instructions, right? >> yeah. so they deserve all the kudos. >> yes, they do. an idaho family was living without a roof over their heads for more than three weeks. >> the roof was mistakenly removed by a contractor they did not hire. their home is covered with tarp, and rain has seemed in, damaging the flooring and drywall. the roofing company claims its workers were sent to the wrong address. >> june 1st, my daughter came home from school to find that people were removing the roof of our house. it was a mistake, a very costly mistake. it should have been fixed. it should have been fixed, but no one will do it. >> yeah, oops. the contractor's insurance company has refused to pay to replace the metal roof. the family says estimates from other contractors are upwards of $70,000. talk about a "this isn't where i parked my car" situation. this isn't the roof -- >> and the part that's even worse is the longer this drags on, the more damage that's being done to the home that's covered by a tarp. >> hey, it's not her fault.
