Kidnap Victim Amanda Berry Hailed as 'Real Hero' in Rescue of Three Women


Amanda Berry Saved Herself, Her Daughter and Two Other Women

Police said they "had not yet determined" whether the women were sexually abused while in captivity, but Tomba said it was "good possibility" that one of the suspects had fathered the child.

"As of right now there is no indication that it's bigger than our neighborhood," Tomba said when asked if there could be more women held in houses other than the one on Seymour Ave. He said investigators would search properties that belong to the other brothers Onil and Pedro Castro.

On Monday evening, neighbor Charles Ramsey said that he was eating McDonald's at home when he heard a girl screaming and begging for help.

"I look and I see this girl and she's just going nuts on the door so, I'm like, 'What's your problem? If you're stuck, just open the door.' She said 'I can't, you got it locked,'" he said.

Ramsey said that their attempt to pry the door open failed, so he and his neighbor kicked open the bottom.

"Luckily … it was aluminum, it was cheap," he said, "And she climbed out with her daughter. ... She went to my house, we called 911."
