ST. PAUL, Minn. — A Minnesota teenager, fearing his mother's alleged attacker would hear him if he called 911, used Facebook to summon police, officials said.

Hearing his mother, Kelly Heinl, 33, scream for help as her boyfriend allegedly beat her, the 15-year-old, of St. Paul, used his cellphone to post a message on Facebook, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Tuesday.
