WATCH: Video Of Alleged Cleveland Kidnapper's Capture

CLEVELAND — With a police cruiser approaching from behind, Jasmina Baldrich thought she was going to get pulled over. She had no idea she was about to witness the rescue that would captivate the world.Baldrich was driving down West 25th Street Monday evening and turned left at the first available side street. It was Seymour Avenue.The Cleveland street soon became known as the place where Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were held as prisoners for a decade.The story started to unravel when Baldrich and a friend heard a woman identify herself to police.As they sat in disbelief, police officers worked to pry open the front door of the home and then rushed inside.Berry, 27, had escaped on her own when she caught the attention of neighbors who helped to break part of the door, but DeJesus and Knight had not made it out yet.Baldrich was there to see them emerge. She said the women were covered by hoodies and then ushered into ambulances.The tears didn’t end there.Like most people in the area, Baldrich knew Amanda Berry’s name. Berry had gone missing in April 2003, one day before her 17th birthday.In the years that followed, her family worked to keep her story in the headlines in hopes that the community would remain vigilant in the effort to find her.DeJesus, 23, and Knight, 32, went missing in 2004 and 2002 respectively.Baldrich used her cell phone to record the officers entering the home, but after rolling for a few seconds, it ran out of power.The experience made an impression on Baldrich, who now feels a closeness to the women and hopes to meet them one day.The alleged captor, Ariel Castro, was charged with kidnapping and rape. His bond was set at $8 million. Additional charges could be filed.The women and a 6-year-old who escaped from the home were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center for evaluation and released.Paternity tests revealed Castro, 52, was the father.
