HAMPDEN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — The call came in as what could have been an emergency: a woman tied to a tree in the woods.

That call came into the Hampden Police Department Tuesday afternoon. A passerby who was out walking their dog near Mayo Road reported a woman tied to a tree about a quarter-mile into the woods.

Police responded with EMTs and found not only a woman but a man in the area as well.

"Let’s just say a male and a female were probably preparing to engage in adult activities," said Sgt. Christian Bailey.

He described the scenario as a "consensual encounter," and there was no emergency after all.

We’re going to go out on a limb and guess they’ll stay indoors for a while.
