Danville Man Arrested and Charged with Abduction

Danville, VA- A Danville man has been charged with abduction after an incident at an apartment Friday night.

Police responded to the 300 block of Hughes Street around 10:23 p.m. in reference to someone refusing to allow several women to leave an apartment. When officers arrived they found that two of the women had been released, but one was still being held against her will.

Officers say they heard the woman screaming in the apartment, so they forced open the locked apartment door. They then arrested 51-year-old David Willis Womack. Womack has been charged with three counts of abduction, assault and battery and domestic assault. He is being held in the Danville City jail without bond.
