Nanny cam catches woman slapping infant

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

WARNING: SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND THE VIDEO DISTURBING

A nanny hired by one Staten Island family ended up behind bars after the parents say they caught her abusing their infant.

Shocking video shows Mamura Nasirova, 52, repeatedly slapping a 5-month-old baby she was hired to take care of, police said.

Officials say Nasirova repeatedly hit the baby girl on her face and legs with an open hand and shook her, leaving the infant crying and red.

The video was recorded by a so-called "nanny cam" hidden inside a carbon monoxide detector inside the family's Staten Island home. When her parents saw what was going on, they ran home and called police.

There was no answer at the family's home Wednesday afternoon, but their neighbors were stunned to hear what had happened.

The incident took place last Monday, according to documents from the district attorney.

When cops showed up to arrest Nasirova a week later, they say she refused to be handcuffed.

Nasirova is facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest. She is due back in court Friday February 8.

Kevin Byrne, an attorney for Nasirova, had no comment when reached by phone.
