A mother allegedly locked her two-year-old son in a homemade cage in filthy conditions and neglected to take him to a doctor when he fell down stairs.

Naesha Lumpkin, 24, was in her Buffalo, New York, home with her toddler in a separate bedroom when state troopers and officials with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation executed a felony arrest warrant for a prior crime.

Inside, investigators found the boy in a ‘make shift cage’ which was a ‘play pen that was covered by a piece of a crib tied down on three side to the top not allowing the child to stand or exit’, according to New York State Police.

‘The cage and 2-year-old were covered in human fecal matter,’ stated the agency on Thursday.

‘There was fecal matter on the walls. The child and bedding were soaked in urine and fecal matter.’

The toddler was rushed to Oishei’s Children’s Hospital. A medical evaluation revealed that the boy suffered two fractured ribs that were healing and appeared to have occurred 10 days to two weeks prior. He also had bruises on his face and body.

Meanwhile, his mother was taken to SP Clarence and slapped with an arrest warrant and a new child endangerment charge.

Asked about her son’s injuries, Lumpkin said he tumbled down the stairs in late December or early January.

‘Lumpkin went on to explain the child was crying as a result of the incident, but Naesha did not seek professional medical assistance,’ said state police.

The mother was arrested for child endangerment when authorities executed the arrest warrant on February 8.
