A man is suspected to have broken into a suburban New Jersey home and beaten a woman for 10 minutes while her 3-year-old daughter watched. The man then is alleged to have robbed the woman’s home, taking off with her wedding rings and her purse.

And most of it, including parts where the women is punched, kicked and then thrown down the basement stairs, was caught on a hidden nanny cam, say police.

Shawn Custis, the 42-year-old man who allegedly beat the woman, entered a not-guilty plea Tuesday morning to an Essex County judge, according to Katherine Carter, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office.

Custis is facing numerous charges, including first-degree attempted murder, second-degree burglary and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, Carter said. He has a criminal record ranging back to the 1990s for burglaries.
