APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - A Fox Valley father is accused of hitting his 2-year-old son, tying him up and placing him in a dog cage.
Thirty-4-year-old Michael Kitzman, of Little Chute, faces felony charges of child abuse. Officer Scott Vanschyndel says Kitzman admitted losing his temper and striking the toddler. He says the abuse left bruises on the boy.
The officer says Kitzman then tied the toddler's legs and arms with clothing and left him for about 45 minutes, then untied him and put him in a dog kennel and placed it in a dark room.
WLUK-TV reports a criminal complaint says Kitzman admitted to the abuse and says he "just lost it."
