JONESBORO, AR - An incident at a Jonesboro daycare center yesterday prompted phone calls from parents concerned about the safety of their children...but the children may have never really been in danger, after all.

After what witnesses described as a dramatic invasion of the We'll Keep 'Em daycare in north Jonesboro, new information is surfacing that leads police to believe the incident was no where near as serious as they were initially led to believe.

The owner of the business told police that two men armed with guns invaded the daycare at 106 North Rogers Street, making threats.  Today, the owner herself is facing charges.

The drama began early Monday afternoon when the woman made the call to police, which resulted in two men being arrested...20-year-old Julius Henry and 20-year-old Terry Henry were initially suspected on aggravated assault and terroristic threatening.  This afternoon, as more evidence surfaced, charges against the Henrys were downgraded to disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

Meanwhile, daycare owner Jeanette Ross has been charged with filing a false police report, "due to great inconsistencies provided by" her.  Police found no evidence of any weapons at the scene.

Ross now says it appears that Julius Henry was looking for his girlfriend, and believed she may have been hiding at the daycare.  She insists it was a situation that got out of hand.  "I know everybody thinks this was the worst thing in the world that could have happened, but the kids are safe here at We'll Keep 'Em.  You can look around, everything is good...I don't expect any more trouble at all."

Until, of course, she appears in court to answer the charges filed against her today.
