BATON ROUGE - Authorities arrested a man who allegedly did nothing to help a woman who was held for 13 days against her will.

On Sunday, police responded to a suspicious incident at an unspecified residence in Baton Rouge.

According to the arrest report, the victim advised that a Leroy Ruffin abused her, threatened her, and wouldn't let her leave the residence. The victim also stated that another man, identified as Oreall Ruffin, allowed the alleged abuser into the residence.

The two suspects are believed to be brothers.

Authorities say Oreall knew about the abuse, didn't offer assistance to the victim, and didn't call for help. He was charged with accessory after the fact to false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon. 

The affidavit suggests Leroy is still at large.
