Kids locked out of house, police say
EXPORT (AP) — Police say a Westmoreland County man was drunk when he locked his three children out of the house and told them to go “look for seashells” along a dark and dangerous stretch of rural road.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Charles Seibel, 36, of Washington Township. He has been jailed since his arrest Saturday night.
That’s when police reported that Seibel kicked out his kids — they are 14, 8 and 6 years old — and told them not to return.
Township police said the children walked to a neighbor’s a half mile away and were also helped by an off-duty state trooper who lives nearby.
Police say Seibel fought with them, so he’s charged with resisting arrest in addition to three counts of endangering the welfare of children.
