Video: Man who found Amanda Berry 'kicked in the door'

Neighbor Charles Ramsey speaks to media near the home on the 2200 block of Seymour Avenue, where three missing women were rescued in Cleveland, on Monday.

 

(USA TODAY) -- Amanda Berry, who had been missing for a decade, screamed from inside a home Monday until neighbors heard her.

Neighbor Charles Ramsey said he heard noises and saw another neighbor moving toward the house where Berry was located.

"I heard screaming," Ramsey told WEWS-TV. "I'm eating my McDonald's. I come outside. I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house."

Berry said she was being held captive and needed to get out of the house. Ramsey said the door was only wide enough for a hand to fit through, so they kicked out the bottom and made enough space for her to escape. Berry came out and brought a young girl with her.

Berry identified herself and quickly called 911. "I'm Amanda Berry. ... I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for 10 years. And I'm here. I'm free now."

Berry said more women were in the house and police arrived and freed Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight within minutes of Berry's call.

Police have arrested three suspects in the case: Ariel Castro, 52, the owner of the house, Pedro Castro, 54, and Onil Castro, 50. Ramsey said he knew his neighbor and had eaten barbecue with him in the backyard.

"There was nothing exciting about him - well, until today," Ramsey told WEWS-TV.

The stunning discovery of the three women ended a mystery that had perplexed the city for as long as a decade.
