Police report released in Tucson imprisonment case

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A 17-year-old girl and her two younger sisters hugged, touched each other's faces and talked about how they had all changed after being reunited following imprisonment by their mother and stepfather for up to two years.

The details are described in a police report and the transcript of a 911 call from a neighbor. Police released the documents Tuesday.

Investigators said the two younger girls, ages 12 and 14, escaped last week through the window of the bedroom they shared and alerted a neighbor after the stepfather tried to break down the room's door and was brandishing a knife.

Police say the three girls were malnourished and dirty. One of them said she hadn't showered in more than a month.

The girl's stepfather, Fernando Richter, and their mother, Sophia Richter, face multiple counts of kidnapping and child abuse.
