CLEVELAND - In an on-camera interview with ABC News, Cleveland Police Chief Mike McGrath said Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, were bound with "chains and locks" inside the Seymour Avenue house where the three abducted women were rescued on May 6.
But despite how the women were treated for a decade and longer, they are now doing "extremely well," McGrath said.
Ariel Castro, who owns the house of horrors, and his two brothers, Pedro and Onil, are expected to be charged in the case Wednesday afternoon.
Interviews with the victims continue as McGrath stressed all three are "doing very well, very well. Under these circumstances extremely well...They must be some really, really strong individuals."
Forensic teams have completed their search and evidence gathering at the Seymour Avenue home. They confirmed Tuesday night that no human remains were found in or around the house.
If charges are filed Wednesday afternoon, a news conference will be held.
