SEARINGTOWN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Police arrested a 57-year-old nanny early Friday morning after the baby’s parents caught the woman beating the child, Nassau County Police said.
The baby’s father heard his daughter cry out around 1:40 a.m., police said. Concerned, he reviewed video from a camera installed in his 2-week-old daughter’s bedroom.
Footage from May 30 showed Stacy Sakeran yelling at the baby girl and striking her several times with an open hand, police said. Police arrested Sakeran around 4:10 a.m on Friday.
She’s been charged with two counts of assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
