Ariel Castro charged with four counts of kidnapping, three counts of rape, brothers still not charged

Kidnapping and rape charges were filed Wednesday against a man arrested after three women missing for about a decade were found alive at his home.

The homeowner of the Cleveland “House of Horrors,” Ariel Castro, was charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape while his brothers, Pedro and Onil Castro, were held but faced no immediate charges.

Castro will be arraigned in Cleveland municipal court Thursday morning, and officials say they expect additional counts to be made.

Councilman Brian Cummins said that many details remain unclear, including the number of pregnancies and the conditions under which the miscarriages occurred. He also said the women were kept in the basement for some time without having access to the rest of the house, and police said the women were apparently bound with ropes and chains.

“We know that the victims have confirmed miscarriages, but with who, how many and what conditions we don’t know,” Cummins said. He added: “It sounds pretty gruesome.”

The crime scene was closed at Castro’s Seymour Avenue home Wednesday, but police said another investigation was underway at a second location on the same street.
