CLEVELAND (AP) - Police made regular crime runs to the Cleveland street where three women were held captive in a house over a decade before escaping.
Since the 2002 abduction of the first victim, Michelle Knight, Cleveland police went to the block along Seymour Avenue to take crime reports nearly 160 times.
An analysis published Sunday by The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer says that amounts to just over one crime report a month over the past decade for a city block with fewer than 20 homes.
According to the analysis, there were more than 35 assaults, many of them domestic crimes against women and some resulting in busted lips and bleeding noses.
