A mother was shocked to see a surveillance video, showing a babysitter intentionally burning her 2-year-old son, according to police in New York.

Nassau County police said that they have arrested 21-year-old Nosipho Nxumalo of Manhattan, after being accused of burning the 2-year-old son of Angela Persaud in Long Island.

Nxumalo has been charged with two counts of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.

She was booked into jail, and her bail has been set at $25,000.

A judge ordered Nxumalo to stay away from the child and his parents.

According to the criminal complaint, Persaud was bathing the 2-year-old boy in her home when he screamed in pain as he touched his left hand.

Persaud noticed redness on his hand. The boy told his mother that the babysitter burned him with a hot curling iron. Persaud reviewed the surveillance video of a home, and saw the babysitter burning her son with a hot curling iron.

The babysitter is heard telling the boy that this is what happens when you do not listen. During questioning, Nxumalo told police that she burned the child because he did not listen and he needed to be disciplined.
