Woman arrested for assaulting children at Lexington daycare facility

Lexington, SC 07/20/2021 – Chief Terrence Green of the Lexington Police Department announced Monday that an arrest was made after an allegation of children being assaulted at a daycare facility in the Town of Lexington. This was reported by the facility’s administrator.


On the morning of July 12, 2021, an investigation began regarding an employee of the Harvest Daycare which is located on Whiteford Way. It was alleged at that time that an employee 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.

Breanna Audette was arrested on July 15, 2021, and she has been charged with fourteen counts of Unlawful Conduct Towards a Child. She was taken to the Lexington County Detention Center where she was booked into jail. During her bond hearing, a judge set her bond amount at $14,000.


This is an ongoing case. Administrators of the Harvest Daycare have cooperated throughout the investigation with both the South Carolina Department of Social Services and the Lexington Police Department.
