CLEVELAND, OHIO (PIX11)– Creepy revelations about accused Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro are surfacing.

Relatives of the man accused of brutally enslaving three girls say he used to terrorize them with a freaky female mannequin.

The New York Post reports he kept the torso in the front passenger seat of his car, complete with a black wig.

He used to sneak up on people and scare them with the mannequin.

He did it once to his ex-wife, who tumbled down a flight of stairs, breaking her arm and dislocating her shoulder.

Castro has been charged with multiple counts of kidnapping and rape.

He abducted Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight ten years ago.
