KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (WGHP) -- Kernersville Police charged 25-year-old Matthew Anthony Brooks and 26-year-old Heather Greenway with physically abusing Greenway’s two young sons at an OYO Inn Sunday.

The 3-year-old and 4-year-old boys were taken to a hospital and are now being looked after by Child Protective Services.

FOX8 found that Brooks has a history of sexual battery and simple assault.

A motel employee called for help after she says she saw a 3-year-old and 4-year-old boy severely beaten.

“They have bruises all over the side of their head. There looks like blood. It’s pretty bad,” the employee said in a 911 call.

The caller was noticeably shaken up and was trying to catch the couple she believed were responsible before they checked out of the OYO Inn in Kernersville.

“The kid's face. It’s horrible. This isn’t a fall. It looks like someone really beat the hell out of him,” the employee said.

Brooks is being held on a $750,000 bond and Greenway a $500,000 bond.
