Cleveland women held by ropes and chains

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (KNOE 8 News) - 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.

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 Wednesday.
