Neighbors Dispute Ramsey's Role In Women's Rescue

May 14, 2013

Some neighbors say Charles Ramsey's story of how he helped rescue the Cleveland kidnapping victims is false.

Jovita Marti's mother lives across the street from suspect Ariel Castro. Speaking as a translator for her mother, Jovita says it was another neighbor, Angel Cordero, who helped Amanda Berry escape.

Ramsey gained national attention for claiming to have assisted in last week's rescue of Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Court records show he was charged with domestic violence at least three times since 1997 and served six months in prison on one conviction. Ramsey has said those arrests made him a better person.
