Charles Ramsey doesn't want a reward. Charles Ramsey says he's "a Christian and an American" who did the right thing in responding to Amanda Berry's calls for help.
On Monday, Charles Ramsey became a national hero.
Ramsey is the next door neighbor to Ariel Castro, who allegedly held three women captive in a Cleveland home for more than a decade.
Ramsey says shortly after he'd returned home from McDonald's on Monday, he heard "a girl going nuts" at the Castro house.
It was Amanda Berry. But Ramsey didn't know who she was. He'd lived next door to Ariel Castro and barbequed with him in the back yard. But he'd never seen this young woman before.
"She said help me get out," he says. "I figured it was a domestic violence dispute," he told The Associated Press. The door would only open a crack, so he told her to kick out the screen. "She comes out with a little girl and says 'Call 911.'
