Woman called cops as she heard someone scream "Help! Let me out" & cops arrived to find the culprit was a cheeky parrot

The police arrived at the crime scene and found that their handcuffs were too big for their suspect.

Hearing loud, chilling cries that go, "Let me out! Let me out" can make anyone stop in their tracks.

When a lady in Florida heard the startling cries, she quickly called the police to inform them that it sounded like someone was in great danger, trapped in the house near them.

If you heard the shrieking voice in the video, you would definitely think the same!

The deputies in Lake Worth Beach immediately arrived at the house to find a man working on a car while the loud shrieks could still be heard, according to People.

Luckily, the mystery was solved within minutes and the culprit was found. It was a 40-year-old parrot named Rambo, who is now a well-known name after his story went viral.

"Our Deputies in Lake Worth Beach came to the help of someone screaming for help," said a Facebook post from the PBSO—Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office account. "Hilarity ensued."

The man who was working on the car was surprised to see a bunch of cops landing up at his house out of nowhere.

"I was changing the brakes on my wife's car and had my 40-year-old parrot, Rambo, on his outside perch where he sings and talks," the man said, according to the post. "Sometime later four police officers showed up saying a neighbor called because she heard a woman screaming for help."

In the video, the parrot's owner can be heard telling the police, “I’ll bring out the screamer to you,” as quoted by HuffPost.

The man went into his house and came out with his very talkative parrot perched on his finger.


"I promptly introduced the officers to Rambo and we all had a good laugh," the man who was housing the green-feathered culprit went on to say in his account. 

The bird owner also decided it was time he introduced his neighbors to Rambo, as he constantly sings and talks to himself having no idea about the consequences of his words.

"Afterward, I also introduced Rambo to the neighbor who called in the screaming. She too had a good laugh," said Rambo's owner.

Having been in the family since he was a year old, Rambo thinks he's a human, too. The owner's wife told KHOU 11 that the parrot is more of an "uncle" than a parrot to their children.

The owner revealed how he and his brothers in their childhood even taught Rambo a few tricks to scare their parents. He said, "Sometimes Rambo yells 'help, help, let me out'. Something I taught him when I was a kid and Rambo lived in a cage."

It's been decades since then and Rambo still remembers some of those old tricks in his 40s. But one trick led to a 911 call. Thankfully, the police took it in good humor and found it hilarious that a cheeky parrot had them springing into action.
