Police said Mrs. Roman Mardakhaev, the mother of the child became suspicious that all was not well with her child at home, while she was at work. Secretly, the mother placed a small video camera inside a carbon monoxide detector. It broadcast real-time images of the incident to the mother who was monitoring the situation from work.
When the nanny, Mamura Nasirova, attempted to give the baby a bottle which was refused, she smacked the little girl across the face three separate times. The 52-year-old nanny, also shook the girl in the stationary infant seat and then slapped the child's legs. While there was no sound accompanying the live video feed, the child is visibly crying.
The child suffered some redness and swelling. No bones were broken during the attack.
On February 1, the child's parents went to police. The nanny was arrested two days later. Police said that when they went to arrest Nasirova, the woman resisted and fought back.
