VIDEO: New York nanny arrested for allegedly slapping infant's face repeatedly

(CBS) -- Footage caught by a "nanny cam" at a Staten Island home led to the arrest of a New York woman Sunday for allegedly slapping an infant girl in the face, CBS New York reports.

Mamura Nasirova, 52, was arrested Sunday evening and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, according to the station.

Nasirova's arrest came after a surveillance video showed her allegedly slapping the 5-month-old infant repeatedly with an open hand to the face after the child refused to be fed from a bottle, CBS New York reports. She then allegedly shook the child's face before picking her up and leaving the room.

The child's parents set up the surveillance camera inside a carbon-monoxide detector, according to CBS New York. Sabrina's mother was at work when she saw a remote feed of what took place and rushed home to call police.

The baby reportedly suffered some redness and swelling as a result of the abuse.
