Three missing women – Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight – were found tonight in a Cleveland home.
A resident who lives near the home where Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were found said he knew there was something wrong with the house when he moved in last year.
This is one WILD video—
“I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms.”
Cleveland Police arrested a 52-year-old Hispanic man Ariel Castro at the house where the three women were found Monday.
Castro has lived at the house since 1992.
He is a Cleveland bus driver.
Three women who went missing in separate cases have been found together Monday in Cleveland, Ohio, police said.
One of the women called 911 after breaking out of the house where she had been living.
“Help me, I am Amanda Berry,” she said, her voice distraught and quick, according to an audio recording of the call released Monday night. “I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been missing for 10 years. And I’m here and I’m free now.”
A 52-year-old man has been arrested, Cleveland police said on their website.
The three women appeared to be in good health, police said.
“I am thankful that Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight have been found alive,” Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said. “We have many unanswered questions regarding this case and the investigation will be ongoing. Again, I am thankful that these three young ladies are found and alive.”
Angie Garcia, whose aunt lives across the street from where the women were found, said Berry ran over to the house Monday and begged to use the phone. Berry, who was wearing a wig, told the aunt who she was and then asked to use the phone to call 911.
The women and two young children came out of the house across the street, Garcia said.
“We never saw the girls there and we were always outside,” she said. “We only saw the guy.”
UPDATE: Two of Castro’s brothers were arrested too.
UPDATE: The Daily Mail has a photo of the perp.
Arrested: The prime suspect has been identified as 52-year-old Ariel Castro.
