A Baton Rouge man is accused of choking his estranged girlfriend until she lost consciousness and holding her captive in her Alliquipa Street house, police said.
Baton Rouge police went to the victim’s house early Thursday after Raymond Robins, 27, had pulled her out of bed by her hair and choked her until she was unconscious, according to an arrest report.
Robins returned several hours after police had left and grabbed the victim as she was walking to a neighbor’s house for safety, authorities said.
He dragged her back to her house and tied her hands with a scarf, telling her not to say anything when police returned for a well-being check, the report says.
When officers arrived at the house about two hours after their initial visit, Robins ran out the back door of the house, police said.
When they saw Robins walking in the 3240 block of Alliquipa Street about 6:30 a.m., he ran back inside his girlfriend’s house, where police arrested him.
Robins, 3240 Alliquipa St., was booked into Parish Prison on counts of second-degree battery, simple kidnapping and false imprisonment.
