The father, Cecil Eugene Kutz, 39, is charged three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and three counts of recklessly endangering another person, FOX8 reports. She suffered heavy bleeding and Kutz called an ambulance for her around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police eventually arrested Cecil Kutz, 27, the Eagle reported. Trooper Thomas Robin told The Associated Press that the woman was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. He remained jailed Thursday without an attorney. "There isn't any reason to put a child in a cage", said Sgt. Fred Krute, Pennsylvania State Police.

A father is in prison after leaving his new born baby, and two toddlers at home alone.

The handmade cage had a mattress pad, children toys and food, authorities said. Once she was at the hospital in Pottsville the staff wondered where her newborn baby was, officials arrived here to a shocking scene.

A Schuylkill County children's services official responded to the Pottsville home Wednesday for a welfare check, the station reports. No evidence of baby formula was visible inside the home or evidence seen that the baby was fed, the affidavit said.

During questioning, Kutz allegedly told investigators he'd kept his kids in the cage before and had left them there on Wednesday in order to visit their mother - his girlfriend - who was in the hospital after recently giving birth.

Police say the children were home alone for about 40 minutes.

The father confessed to using the cage as a makeshift crib to keep the boy "safe" at night.

Police say a 22-month-old boy was locked inside of a homemade cage that was made out of plywood and lattice, and it had a door on it that was locked from the outside.

Kutz is now being held in the Schuylkill County Prison on $250,000 bail.

Wilkes-Barre, PA**Cecil Kutz, also known as Gene, 37, was taken into custody after authorities say he left his three young children home alone in Schuylkill County.

"We're happy we got there, we're happy Children and Youth is now taking custody of these kids, and we're happy Dad's locked up", he said. Police say she gave birth to the child in a garage-like attached shed.
