RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) — Two inland Southern California childcare workers have been arrested on suspicion of child abuse after an 8-month old boy was brought to a hospital with skull fracture, authorities said.

An investigation began after the boy who attended Kiddie Academy in Rancho Cucamonga was hospitalized last September, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

Two Kiddie Academy employees, women ages 29 and 50, face charges including child abuse and conspiracy. The two conspired to conceal the child’s injuries and neglected his well-being, sheriff’s officials said Thursday.

Representatives for Kiddie Academy in Rancho Cucamonga did not return a call Saturday seeking comment.
