LEXINGTON (AP) — Four former Kentucky daycare workers have been charged with abuse, police said.

All four worked at Eagle Creek Learning Academy in Lexington, police told news outlets.

Samantha Ayers, 32, Maurisa Sweat, 24, and Jazzmine Webb, 20, were charged with first-degree criminal abuse, police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said. Terri Thompson, 40, was charged with second-degree criminal abuse and failure to report abuse, Angel said.

The women were arrested Wednesday and booked into the Fayette County Detention Center, according to jail records.

Thompson was the director at the academy and Ayers, Sweat and Webb taught 1-year-olds.

All four women were fired after a family reported bruising on a child’s arm on Jan. 7, the Learning Academy said. The center said it worked with police and state officials to investigate.

It wasn't clear whether the women charged have attorneys.
