Kidnap suspect had faced complaints

CLEVELAND — The man charged with holding three women captive for about a decade had been accused of threatening his neighbors, attacking his common-law wife, and committing violations during his career as a school bus driver, according to records released Monday.

The Cleveland police reports correspond with accounts provided by relatives of suspect Ariel Castro last week that portrayed a man prone to violent outbursts, especially when it came to the mother of his children and incursions onto his property.
