The caller claimed he was told by the man that the two were, “just having some fun”. The 911 call resulted in a nine car manhunt for a blue Suburu. A license plate was relayed to police which ended up with the owner of the car being spotted and pulled over. Inside, was the owner and the nude, tied up women.
The man, Nikolas Harbar, 31, and his girlfriend, Stephanie Pelzner, 26, told police that there was a misunderstanding. The couple were simply acting out a Valentines’ day bondage fantasy. Despite both parties involve agreeing it was an innocent episode of sexual fantasy, the duo was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Explained Lt. Robert King, “The concern is their actions created a pretty substantial public alarm, to the point where you have a 911 caller saying she’s concerned about this person tied up naked in the back of a car”.
