Two Queens women are under arrest for allegedly abusing foreign exchange students in their care.

Prosecutors say Sun Kyung Park and Min Kyung Chea are charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The women allegedly abused four children between the ages of 9 and 11 at the Crown Tutoring Academy in Little Neck.

Chea's husband owns the school.

The Queens District Attorney says Park and Chea punished their students with extreme physical endurance challenges.

They also say the women withheld food from the kids and didn't allow them to use the restroom.

These punishments were allegedly given out to students who misbehaved, performed poorly on tests or were too loud.

Park is also charged with assault.

She faces up to seven years in jail if convicted.

Chea was also charged with attempted assault and faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
