Danville police acted on a report Tuesday that a woman was being held against her will at a house on East Main Street, but after the woman was freed, she declined to press charges.
According to a press release from the department, officers received a tip that Mae Burgess, Danville, was being held by armed people at 304 East Main St., next door to Jennie Rogers Elementary School.
Police made contact with her by cell phone, and she indicated she was not free to leave the home.
The D.P.D. Special Response Team entered the home at 1 p.m. and took Burgess to the police station for questioning. She declined to press charges, and no arrests were made. Assistant Chief Jay Newell said the investigation is continuing and charges may be filed at a later date.
"The victim declined to cooperate with the investigation, and as a result, no charges were filed," said Newell. "We will continue to investigate in an attempt to determine what led to the original call."
