Child Care Arrests
RACINE, Wis. (AP) – Two employees of a Racine child care center are facing felony child abuse charges. Police say a video surfaced on social media that shows three young children restraining and beating a 2-year-old boy at the Bundle of Blessings Kid Kare center last month. Sgt. Jessie Metoyer says one of the employees, a 22-year-old Caledonia woman, is the mother of two of the children who physically assaulted the toddler. Metoyer says the three children, ages unknown, held down the 2-year-old and punched and kicked him. Police say the video was taken by one of the two women. The Caledonia woman and a 23-year-old Racine woman are each charged with child abuse by failing to prevent bodily harm. Both women are due in court Friday afternoon. Metoyer says the 2-year-old is doing OK.
