There are few causes, which can cause this blood in bag;

1) There was injury during catheterization. The prostate enlargement may be the reason of inability to void.

2) There was a stone in the bladder which caused the bleeding and obstruction.

3) A bladder tumor can also cause the bleeding and obstruction.

4) A prostate congestion may also cause bleeding.

He would need an ultrasound and a cystoscopy for the evaluation. A urine exam and culture should also be done.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
