2 Daycare Workers At Georgia Air Force Base Accused of Child Abuse, Including Spraying Cleaning Fluid In Kids’ Faces, Forcing Them To Fight -Breaking 911

Two women are facing federal charges for allegedly abusing more than a dozen children at a childcare facility on Robins Air Force Base. The indictment lists 14 alleged victims and a third woman is also listed in the indictment for failing to report the abuse.

A 3-year-old boy was allegedly punched and slammed at a daycare in Clarkston, Ga., by Bernetta Glover and Autumn Coney, who face charges of first-degree cruelty to children. The boy’s mother claims she saw the workers assault her son on surveillance video.

The indictment alleges that Flynn and Fritz, two former Robins Air Force Base daycare employees, struck children, forced children to fight each other, sprayed children in the face with a cleaning solution, seized and shaken a child while threatening to strike them, and kicked a child into a wall.

Robins Air Force Base said it is fully supporting the ongoing investigation and reviewing processes to safeguard its children.

Police issued a warrant for Glover and Coney’s arrests on Friday. Coney turned herself in that same day but bonded out of jail on Tuesday.
