Caught on video: Police storming Ariel Castro's home

An eyewitness video shows police storming into Cleveland kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro's home last Monday evening, just moments after one of the female captives had already escaped and the other two were still inside the house and about to be rescued.

CBS News have obtained video, which is at the top of this post, from Jasmina Baldrich, 23, who was outside of the house in a car.

At first, Baldrich saw a police vehicle speeding up behind her car. She pulled over, thinking she had done something wrong. But the officers rushed past her and towards the house. Baldrich didn't know what was going on until a woman passed by and overheard her say, "I'm Amanda Berry."

Baldrich's iPhone phone video shows police entering the front door of Castro's home. By then, Berry, along with her 6-year-old daughter, were already with police; the other two women, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, were still inside the house and soon rescued.

Castro was apprehended at a local fast food restaurant by police. They spotted him a blue Convertible based upon the missing girls' description. He was later arraignedon charges of kidnapping and rape.

"It's still shocking to this day," Baldrich told CBS News correspondent Terrell Brown Saturday night. "I can remember like it was yesterday."

Asked about how she felt about being in the middle of one of the biggest stories in Cleveland and the country, Baldrich responded, "I don't know. I'm very shocked. That's all I can feel right now. I'm forever gonna feel shock."

More of the interview with Baldrich can be seen on the Sunday May 12 broadcast of "CBS Evening News."
