Posted:

WEST PALM BEACH, (FL ) WFLX-- A West Palm Beach child care worker is charged with abusing two toddlers at a day care center.

Zully Ruiz Yapan, an employee at Apostolic Child Development Center, faces two counts of cruelty towards a child.

Police said a 1-year-old was treated at the hospital for an injury caused by something being shoved into the child's mouth.

Surveillance video inside the classroom showed evidence consistent with what the doctors found.

During their investigation, police say the video also showed Yapan abusing a 2-year-old.

Detectives said Yapan admitted her actions were abusive.

She was arrested Thursday but released on bail Friday morning.
