A woman has been arrested in connection with alleged abuse at Oak Tree Academy in Muskogee, according to police reports.
The woman, whose name has not been released, allegedly assaulted juveniles at the academy Monday afternoon, reports state.
Oak Tree Academy owner Debbie Martin said the woman accused has since been fired.
"We do not abuse children here, and we had a worker that had a bad day, and we’re not allowed to have bad days around here," Martin said. "She broke some rules, and that’s where she got in trouble."
Martin said she could not offer further specifics while the matter was under investigation.
"I know there’s two sides to every story, and things have been blown way out of proportion, but until the investigation’s finished, I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything," Martin said. "This is something new to us, we’re just kind of working our way through it."
