[ARCHIVED] Woman Arrested for Assaulting Children in Her Care

Chief Terrence Green would like the community to know that an arrest was made after an allegation of children being assaulted at a daycare facility in the Town of Lexington was reported by the facility administrator. 


On the morning of July 12, 2021, an investigation began regarding an employee of the Harvest Daycare, which is located on Whiteford Way, as she was alleged to have assaulted children who were in her care.  After watching security footage recorded within the daycare, detectives found that Breanna Marie Audette, age 23 of Irmo, had assaulted several children by grabbing them aggressively by the arm, neck, and face and in one incident, pushed a child to the ground.
