WEST FARGO, N.D. (CBSDFW.COM) – How early is too early for Halloween decorations? One North Dakota couple learned the hard way after one of their decorations prompted a 911 call over the weekend by a worried neighbor.

The couple had put up a window sign that read “Help Me,” and it appeared to be written with a bloody substance. However, before putting up any other decorations, the couple went out for dinner.

This Halloween decoration prompted a 911 call to a North Dakota home.

On their way home, the couple received messages from neighbors, asking if they were okay. One neighbor even went as far as calling 911.
