Well, at least he was their "natural father."

A man has been arrested after his two baby daughters were found gagged, bound, and injured inside a residence. At around 1:12 p.m. Friday, deputies responded to a family disturbance call in a home in the 7300 block of Rockridge Road, according to Sgt. Steve Brown of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. When deputies check a bedroom in the house, they discovered the two infant girls, ages 1½ years and 4½ months, lying on the floor, bound and gagged. Both baby girls had visible injuries to their faces and heads, according to Brown. The babies' natural father, 23 year old Jeremiah Scott, fled the scene as soon as deputies arrived.
