At a news conference Tuesday morning, Cleveland Public Safety Director Marty Flask reported that a thorough review of records indicated only two calls to 2207 Seymour Avenue. The first in 2000 was made by the suspect, Ariel Castro, regarding a fight outside of his house, and the second was a police visit to the house in 2004 in an unrelated investigation, Flask said.

A report in USA Today cites neighbors claiming they made other calls to police which were not taken seriously.
Israel Lugo told USA Today he lives two houses down from Castro and that neighbors reported seeing naked women on leashes crawling on all fours behind Castro's house.
Law enforcement will secure the scene at the home on Seymour Avenue Wednesday for future investigation.
Police have until early evening to file charges against the three arrested suspects, Ariel, Onil and Pedro Castro.
