Ariel Castro charged with kidnap, rape of Cleveland women

His brothers will not be charged

(CNN) - Ariel Castro, 52, faces charges on four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape, Victor Perez, chief assistant prosecutor for the city of Cleveland, said late Wednesday afternoon.

Castro was arrested after three women, plus a 6-year-old girl believed to be one of their daughters, escaped Monday evening from his Cleveland home.

Two brothers of Castro will not be charged.

Perez said authorities have found "no evidence" that Pedro and Onil Castro were complicit.
