Two children were found in a bedroom with 100 needles scattered throughout the area, police said.
Now, a man faces various charges in connection to the incident.
Around 5 a.m. on Feb. 10, police in Manchester, New Hampshire, responded to a home for a child needing medical attention.
When officers arrived, nobody answered the door, according to Manchester police. But officers could hear a child inside and forced their way into the home.
Inside, cops saw two children on the bed with Raymond Punturieri. Investigators determined Punturieri made the 911 calls, but he was incoherent and couldn’t give police any information.
Officers found more than 100 needles in the bedroom, many of them were uncapped, according to Manchester police. The needles were scattered on the nightstand, the floor and the bed near where the children were lying.
The children were taken to a hospital after the incident.
Investigators said Punturieri was also involved in a domestic incident that same night.
Puturieri was charged with two counts of reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, simple assault, criminal threatening and resisting arrest.
He is being held in jail without bail.
