A toddler fight club at a daycare center in Delaware was broken up Tuesday with the arrest of three employees.

The three daycare workers were accused of ordering the young children to fight each other for their viewing pleasure.

Dover police said they had a cellphone video in their possession with yells and screams in the background and a child saying "He's pinching me," before a daycare worker says, "No pinching. Only punching," reported the Los Angeles Times.

The video was reportedly taken in March of this year.

"Clearly one of the children is crying and does not want to continue on and he is pushed back into the fray by one of the adults," Dover Police Captain Tim Stump told CBS Philly.

Police have not released the video.

The three women: Tiana Harris, 19, Estefania Myers, 21, and Lisa Parker, 47, were charged with assault, reckless endangerment, conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child.

The three suspects were released after putting up a $10,000 bond each, said WBOC 16.

The licence of the Hands of Our Future daycare center was also suspended.
