A Staten Island mother's worst fears were confirmed when she caught her nanny smacking her infant daughter on hidden camera.
The baby's mother went to the store around 4:20 p.m. on Jan. 28, leaving Mamura Nasirova, the nanny, alone with her baby, the New York Post reports. It was during this time that the nanny was caught on "nanny cam" hitting and shaking the 5-month-old baby girl, according to police.
The video, which was later uploaded to YouTube, shows the nanny attempting to bottle feed the infant who is settled in a baby chair in the living room. At one point, she smacks the baby in the face. Then, after the baby refuses to take the bottle, she begins hitting her on the legs and shakes her.
Per the New York Post's Jessica Simeone:
The family installed the hidden camera in a carbon monoxide detector after they grew suspicious about the Uzbekistan-native nanny, sources said.
The camera was connected to a remote feed that the mother was watching when the abuse occurred inside of the family’s Woodlawn Avenue home, the source said. She immediately rushed home and confronted the woman.
The family then alerted police and posted the video online. The baby suffered some redness and swelling from the abuse, however, she was not seriously injured.
Police arrested Nasirova on Sunday at around 6:15 p.m. at the family's home. She reportedly fought cops as they tried to cuff her, court records show.
She has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors. Nasirova is being held in jail on a $1,000 cash bail bond.
