A CCTV recording that showed the abuse of a toddler has led to a maid's arrest, reported Harian Metro.

In the incident on Tuesday, the one year and eight-month-old girl's parents went to work leaving the girl and her seven-month old brother home with the 30-year-old maid. She hails from Bandung, Indonesia.

When the mother came home from work, she noticed that her daughter's face was bruised and was also bleeding from the right eye. The boy was unharmed.

After taking her daughter to a clinic, the mother watched the CCTV recording and to her horror saw the maid yank the sleeping girl off her bed and onto the floor.

The footage also showed the maid lifting the child by her hair and throwing her into the living room.

Later that night, the father, a bank worker, lodged a police report at the Behrang police station.

The girl is currently receiving treatment at the Slim River Hospital.

Tanjung Malim district police chief Supt Mohd Ali Mat Nayan said the maid had been remanded to assist in investigations under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001 which carries a maximum jail sentence of 10 years or a RM20,000 (S$8176) fine or both.
