There's a pause as the unidentified boy hesitantly says, "Hi," and then "Police lady?"

"Yes," the dispatcher says, switching to a friendlier, singsong tone. "What's going on?"

"Um, can I tell you something?" the boy asks, and after being told he can, says "I've got some toys for you."

"You've got some toys for me?" says the dispatcher.

"Yep. Come over and see them," the boy replies.
