Cleveland, Ohio, native Ariel Castro is the prime suspect in a kidnapping case involving three women who were abducted 10 years ago and found this week.
The 52-year-old was arrested Monday after one of the captives - Amanda Berry - escaped and called police.
Castro was a school bus driver in Cleveland until last year, according to Daily Mail. Records showed that he was arrested for domestic violence and disorderly conduct in December of 1993. The case was dropped after a grand jury disputed the charge.
Castro had lived in the house where the women were found since 1992. His two unnamed brothers were also taken into custody in connection with the abduction case. They are reportedly aged 50 and 54, and they did not live with Castro.
Castro's neighbor, Charles Ramsey, came to Berry's rescue when she escaped the home she was being held against her will in with two other womne. Ramsey said he was shocked that his neighbor could be capable of such a crime.
"I've been here a year. I barbeque with this dude, we eat ribs and what not and listen to salsa music. Not a clue that that girl was in that house or that anyone else was in there with," Ramsey told NewsNet5. "He just comes out to his backyard, plays with the dogs, tinkering with his cars and motorcycles and goes back in the house.
"He's somebody you look and then you look away because he's just doing normal stuff."
On May 2 Castro shared a Facebook message, saying "Miracles really do happen, God is good :) "
