An Orangeburg woman has been taken into custody and charged with cruelty to children.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced Kendra Breanna Rush was arrested after a week-long investigation.  Authorities began their investigation on May 22 when a Department of Social Services employee contacted the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office after noticing a cut on the face of Rush's 7-year-old child.

Rush, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office, did admit to law enforcement officials and the social worker present at the time that she did abuse the child.

Following the arrest, bond was set for Rush at $250 by Orangeburg County Magistrate Judge Rob Clariday.
