(CBS/AP) NEWARK, N.J. - Authorities have arrested a man wanted in a New Jersey home invasion that left a mother beaten, an attack that was captured on a nanny cam.

The Essex County prosecutor's office said 42-year-old Shawn Custis was arrested Friday in Manhattan by the prosecutor's office and the FBI. Custis faces charges of attempted murder, robbery, burglary and child endangerment.

Accoding to CBS New York, the suspect was first hiding out at a girlfriend's home in Newark but the woman kicked him out after seeing him on the news. Police reportedly tracked Custis' cellphone to Inwood in Manhattan where he was hiding at another girlfriend's home.

The station reports the second woman was also arrested.

The June 21 attack in Millburn was captured on a hidden camera in the victim's home. A man can be seen bursting into the home, punching and kicking the woman and throwing her down stairs while her 3-year-old daughter cowered on a couch.

Police withheld the names of the mother and child.

County chief of detectives Anthony Ambrose said Friday that Custis was being transported to an undisclosed location in New Jersey.

Custis reportedly has an extensive criminal history, with several arrests for burglary dating back to 2006.

CBS New York reports a judge set bail at $750,000.
