A nanny in Staten Island was caught by a hidden camera as she hit a baby while she was trying to feed her.
The mother of the 5-month-old girl had grown suspicious of the nanny that they had hired so she installed a video camera inside their carbon monoxide detector that was synched up to a live feed.
As the unidentified mother watched while she was at work, she saw Mamura Nasirova smack her young daughter in the face three times when she won’t take the bottle.
Nasirova, 52, then shakes the girl as she lays in the stationary infant seat before whacking the girl on her legs.
No sound can be heard, but the motions of the child’s mouth suggest that she is crying.
While the baby was found to have redness and swelling as a result of the hits, she did not break any bones.
The nanny, who The New York Post reports is an Uzbekistan-native, then lifts the girl quickly out of her seat and then walks out of the room.
The mother had grown suspicious of the nanny and was apparently watching the abuse in real-time, so she was able to rush home and yell at the woman at around 4.20pm on Sunday January 28.
Nasirova was arrested just two hours later at the family’s home.
Her fighting streak apparently didn’t stop with children either as she reportedly fought with police as they tried to arrest her.
She now faces charges of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest, and she is being held in local jail.
Her bail has been set at $1,000 but she remains in jail.
