The video begins with what appears to be the woman screaming at the child who appears to be walking in from either an entryway or hallway. The woman then points toward a hallway as the toddler walks toward her. WTVJ-TV has video here.
The woman then walks toward the boy and shoves him with one hand in the chest, and he rapidly falls on his back. The clip then appears to lapse before showing another frame in which the woman picks up the child with both hands and throws him into a hallway.
Then the woman proceeds toward the hallway and appears to twice kick the child, who is on the ground, before rolling him over on the ground. She then appears to kick him down the hallway.
According to police, the footage was caught on a doorbell camera.
Police say they arrested Storozhuk on Oct. 31 after a neighbor reported the suspected abuse to authorities.
“I observed redness on the victim’s right cheek and right forehead along with bruising on his right forearm and left knee,” the arrest report states. “Scratches were also observed on his stomach and on his back.”
