ABILENE, Texas -

The Abilene Police Department is investigating a local boot camp program for alleged assaults against children involved in the program.

A mother of one of the children involved said the program is called Reality Invasion Boot Camp.

Standridge said the Special Victims Unit and Child Protective Services are investigating and interviewing children.

He said one child appears to have injuries consistent with the allegations and the youngest child victim is four years old.

No arrests have been made.
