CLEVELAND (AP) -- A police report says three Cleveland women held in captivity inside a home for about a decade were threatened, starved and raped. It also says one of them had five pregnancies aborted by the suspect, who punched her in the stomach until she miscarried.
The report obtained Thursday by The Associated Press paints a grim picture of the women's decade-long ordeal. They were rescued this week when one of them kicked out a door.
Amanda Berry told officers that she delivered a baby in a child's plastic pool while in captivity. Michelle Knight, now 32, told them she suffered at least five miscarriages at the hands of Ariel Castro and said she delivered Berry's baby under threat of death if the baby died.
Castro has been charged with rape and kidnapping.
