RACINE, Wis. -

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 said one of the employees, a 22-year-old Caledonia woman, is the mother of two of the children who physically assaulted the toddler. Metoyer said the three children, ages unknown, held down the 2-year-old and punched and kicked him. Police said 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 appeared in court Friday and remain in jail.

Metoyer said the 2-year-old is doing OK.
