Glaze appeared in East Cleveland Municipal Court on Thursday, but his case was bound over to the county.

According to investigators, a woman escaped Glaze’s home on Glenmont Road where she said he was holding her captive in a freezer.

“She was disoriented and thought today was Sunday. She had no recollection of time," said East Cleveland Police Chief Mike Cardilli.

The female victim was able to escape on Aug. 20 and was then involved in a car crash in the area of East 115th Street and Superior Avenue. After telling police that she escaped her kidnapper, she was taken to the hospital for treatment to frostbite.

Glaze’s case will now be heard by a Cuyahoga County grand jury.
