Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were all allegedly abused by Ariel Castro while they were held in his basement for nearly ten years. But it was Michelle who was his main target.
Michelle Knight Abused
Ariel allegedly threw objects at Michelle, including hand weights, a friend tells CNN. As a kidnap victim, Michelle suffered vision loss, muscle and join damage, and other problems. He also allegedly starved her and punched her in the stomach while pregnant, causing her to miscarry.
Ariel, 52, was arrested and charged with kidnapping and rape after Amanda Berry escaped from the Cleveland, Ohio home on May 6 and called for help. All three women were rescued.
Michelle, Amanda and Gina allegedly told police Ariel abducted them, held them captive and sexually assaulted them, according to CNN.
“I know the media wants to jump to conclusions and all the people in the community want to say terrible things about the person who’s accused,” attorney Jaye Schlachet told the station. “We are not even at the beginning of the process. If this was a marathon race, we’re not even at the starting line yet,” Ariel’s attorneys said.
