Police: Ohio women held with ropes, chains in home

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Cleveland’s police chief says the three women held captive in a house for nearly a decade were restrained with ropes and chains and allowed out into the back yard occasionally.

Chief Michael McGrath said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show today that the physical condition of the three women rescued Monday was “very good considering the circumstances.”

McGrath says he was “absolutely” sure police did everything they could to find the women over the years. He disputed claims by neighbors that officers had been called to the house before for suspicious circumstances.

McGrath says the three men who have been arrested in the case “are talking” but he wouldn’t say if they have confessed. He says a charging decision could come later today.
