VIDALIA, La. — Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office recently arrested another man suspected of beating and holding a woman against her will and there is another still at large.
Multiple arrests have already been made after a woman escaped from captivity and walked into a nearby pharmacy in Vidalia with obvious injuries to her face and neck asking for help, where she reported to authorities what had happened.
The victim alleged that several people had entered her home without permission, kicked and beat her, strangled her, slathered her with Vic’s vapor rub, sprayed her with pepper spray and held her in another house overnight against her will.
