Darryl Vinson, 57, was arrested Friday and charged after a passing motorist noticed him hitting the victim – identified as an unnamed 48-year-old woman

A man brutally beat and raped his ex-girlfriend for four days while keeping her bound and locked in a closet of a Louisiana home, police said. 

Darryl Vinson, 57, was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree rape, aggravated kidnapping, false imprisonment while armed with a weapon and possession of stolen property. 

According to Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson, the victim – identified as an unnamed 48-year-old woman – suffered a brain bleed, broken ribs, black eyes, facial swelling and heavy bruising and cuts throughout her body.

‘I can only imagine every time you hear that closet door getting ready to open, the fear she was in, not knowing what was next,’ Lawson said, NOLA.com reports. ‘It was a very brutal and sadistic event.’ 

Starting on January 25, the Marrero man is said to have repeatedly beat the woman. He repeatedly forced her to have sex with him, inflicting great injury, Lawson stated.

‘What she went through over this period of time was unbelievable,’ Lawson added.

While the woman was trapped for the four days, there were no missing person reports filed on her behalf. 

On Friday, Vinson brought the woman with him on a trip to a store. A passing motorist saw him hit the woman and alerted authorities, according to police. 

‘Whoever the person is who called 911 saved this woman’s life,’ Lawson said. ‘This was only going to escalate more. We might have had a homicide and not realized what was going on.’ 

The woman was freed, soon after, telling authorities of the nature of her injuries once away from Vinson. She was taken to a local hospital and listed in stable condition on Monday.

Vinson was detained by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office on outstanding attachments.  

He is currently being held without bail at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. 

The man has a long history of prior arrests, with a burglary charge and a number of theft charges under his belt. 

Public records indicate that in 1997, Vinson pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting arrest.
