Nanny caught on camera burning 2-year-old boy with curling iron

Nanny caught on camera burning 2-year-old boy with curling iron

The nanny of a 2-year-old Baldwin child was arrested after she was caught on security video burning the boy on his leg and hand with a curling iron, police said Friday.

"I'm feeling devastated. I fee like I failed him", Angela Persaud said of her toddler son, Zander. "I should have done a better job of protecting my kid".

The video shows Nxumalo testing the temperature of a red curling iron against her hand, before touching the hot rod to little Xander's hands and legs.

Police arrested 21-year-old Nosipho Nxumalo on Thursday. As she tells it, she confronted Nxumalo after seeing the incident on tape. The nanny was later identified as Nosipho Nxumalo, a resident of Harlem who was subsequently arrested.

The boy said that his nanny had burned him with a curling iron, according to NBC.

But she never guessed that the woman in charge of watching her son was also his abuser. Court documents indicate that she was trying to "discipline" the toddler because he wouldn't listen.

"She's playing these warped mind games with my child, and it's the most disgusting thing I've ever witnessed in my life". The boy wasn't listening, so she wanted to discipline him.

The 21-year-old NY nanny had reportedly been working for Angela Persaud for just two months at the time that the unthinkable act of child abuse allegedly took place. She revealed that the nanny had been recommended by a local agency, Mom's Helper Inc.

According to detectives, the mother of the boy was bathing her son in their Baldwin home when the child yelled out in pain as she touched his left hand.

"This isn't something that just happened once". She blamed them for sending her the accused assailant, and said they didn't care about her family.
