A Pennsylvania man is charged with child endangerment after police found his three young children home alone - and his 2-year-old son locked in a makeshift wooden cage, FOX8 reports.

Police forced their way into the home in North Manheim Township on Wednesday (17 May) after a tip-off, CBS Philadelphia reported.

The 1-year-old was in a playpen, the baby was in a auto seat and the 22-month-old was in the cage.

This undated photo provided by the Schuylkill County Prison in Pottsville, Pa., shows Cecil Kutz, charged with endangering the welfare of children and reckless endangerment. He remained jailed on Thursday and didn't yet have an attorney.

The baby was rushed to hospital for evaluation and all three children were taken into the care of the county's Children and Youth Services.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

As for his girlfriend, Tiffany George, state police say she could face charges as the investigation continues.

"You have to feel for these kids", Krute said.

Kutz refused to tell police how long he'd left the children or where he went on Wednesday, Robin said.

They broke in through the front door and discovered the children inside the front door, police said. Trooper Thomas Robin told The Associated Press that the woman was taken to hospital and underwent surgery.

Krute said the home was dirty, with an unfinished bathroom and exposed wiring.

Kutz was arrested at the scene and taken into custody.

An earlier story appears below.

A Pennsylvania mother whose 22-month-old son was kept in a cage by the child's father says local child welfare officials had seen the enclosure and "had no problem with it".

Police found his younger brother in a playpen and his newborn sister in a baby vehicle seat nearby.

Troopers arrested Kutz when he returned home.

State police in Schuylkill Haven accuse Kutz of leaving the children alone for at least 40 minutes, court records say.
