In The Region:
Police have arrested three men they believe abducted three girls, keeping them hidden in a West Side Cleveland home for more than a decade. But authorities acknowledge they have more questions than answers at this point, including how the women were kept out of sight for so long.

Cleveland police are holding three brothers, all in their 50s, and expect to charge them with the disappearances of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus.

Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba says Berry’s escape through the front door Monday evening may have saved all their lives. And because police have the suspects in custody, Tomba says the priority for now is helping the women’s emotional state.

“What these young girls went through, and if you would have saw them last night, you’d have nothing but compassion and love in your heart for them.”

The three arrested are Ariel, Pedro and Onil Castro.  Authorities say no neighbors reported problems at the house.
