The woman says during the call that she is in the apartment's bathroom and that her boyfriend won't leave.  She tells the dispatcher that he has a switchblade.

"Please get him out, I've been trying to get him to leave," she is heard telling the dispatcher.

She later says that he had previously tackled her and threatened to kill both her and himself.  She said he was not attempting to force his way into the bathroom while she was on the phone.
