Kevin Horan/Stone(NEW YORK) — A nanny is sitting in a New York City jail cell after a hidden camera recorded her slapping the face of a 5-month-old baby girl.

Mamura Nasirova, 52, was caught striking the tot as she sat in her baby seat, according to court papers.  The child began crying and her face was clearly red from the blow, the complaint says.

A video of the incident, which now has over 46,000 views on Youtube, shows an unharmed older child watching close by and Nasirova apparently slapping the infant’s leg and face, aggressively picking her up, and walking into the next room.

The smack was witnessed by the girl’s suspicious father who had installed a “nanny cam” inside a smoke detector, and it sent the girl’s mother rushing home to confront Nasirova, comfort her baby and call the police, the complaint says.

Nasirova was arrested on misdemeanor charges, including child endangerment and resisting arrest.  But the complaint says she didn’t go easily.

When police tried to put handcuffs on Nasirova she “refused to take her hands from her pockets and did lock her arms to her side and pull her hands away… in an effort to avoid lawful arrest,” it says.

She is being held in the city’s Rikers Island jail in lieu of $1,000 bail.  The incident occurred on Jan. 28.

The parents, identified as Mrs. and Mrs. Roman Mardakhaev, installed at least two cameras in and around their home after becoming concerned about their live-in nanny, said a spokesman for Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan.

Nasirova’s next court appearance is Friday, Feb. 8.
