At a news conference Tuesday morning, Cleveland Police revealed new details about the three missing women who were found safe on Monday evening. Police say they have three men in custody. Listen to the press conference organized by Cleveland Police.
Cleveland Police say they have arrested three men in connection with the disappearance of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight.
The three men are brothers-- 52 year old Ariel Castro, 54 year old Pedro Castro, and 50 year old O’Neal. All have been taken into custody and police expect charges to be filed within the next 36 hours.
Department officials say their records show there were never any calls for service to Ariel Castro’s home on Seymour Ave, the location where the three women were rescued Monday evening. Police say Ariel worked as a Cleveland Schools bus driver, and was questioned once in connection with a child left on the bus, but no charges were ever filed in relation to the incident.
Meanwhile, police say the three women appear to be in okay condition, and were released from Metro Health Hospital earlier this morning. No further details have been released about the conditions of their captivity over the last ten years. Officials have confirmed that the six-year old girl found with the women is the daughter of 27-year old Amanda Berry.
