Nosipho Nxumalo, 21, who was employed as a nanny has been arrested after a nanny cam proved that she was torturing a young boy using a curling iron. The boy’s mother first suspected the nanny while giving her son a bath. He seemed very uncomfortable and even in pain. She closely examined him and was able to see the burn marks on his hands and other places on his body.
She then checked her nanny cam and was appalled by what she say. The nanny was using the curling iron on the boy every time he disobeyed or didn’t obey quickly enough to suit her. The mother, Angela Persaud of Baldwin in Long Island, New York, called the Nassau County police, who then arrested the nanny.
Persaud told NBC New York: ‘After she burns him several times, you see her — you could tell she was telling him, “See that’s what happens when you don’t listen,” and then she hugs him.
‘She’s playing these warped mind games with my child, and it’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.’
Persaud noticed the burns while she was bathing Xander and he pulled away in pain after she noticed redness on his hands.
Two-year-old Xander told his mother that Nxumalo had touched him with a hot iron.
The nanny from Harlem told police she was only trying to discipline her charge.
She said to police: ‘The child wouldn’t listen. I wanted to discipline him using the iron so I burned him.’
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.
She told police: ‘The child wouldn’t listen. I wanted to discipline him using the iron so I burned him.’
Nxumalo pleaded not guilty in court to charges of second degree assault, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and endangering the welfare of a child.
