ALICE (Kiii News) -

With the help of 911 dispatchers, Alice police were able to track down and arrest a man accused of threatening to remove the unborn baby from his girlfriend's stomach with a knife.

It was just after 1 p.m. Wednesday when Alice police received a 911 call from a woman who did not identify herself. However, she left the line open, allowing dispatchers to listen in on a disturbance between a man and a woman.

While listening in on the line, dispatchers head the male subject threaten to remove the woman's unborn child with a knife. They were also able to hear his first name, Jason.

After several minutes, the line was disconnected, but 911 dispatchers had enough information to track down the location from which the call was made. Officers were dispatched to the area, and within minutes they located the couple. The male was identified as Jason Lopez.

In a press release from the Alice Police Department, Chief Randy Weems said, "It was excellent work, we are very proud of our dispatcher and her initiative likely saved a life. This is the type of great police services we hope to provide."

Lopez was placed under arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, family violence and unlawful restraint.
