A nanny holding a child's severed head at a Moscow metro station was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of murder.

Video footage showed the woman, identified by Russian media as 38-year-old Gyulchekhra Bobokulova from Uzbekistan, holding the head close to the Oktyabrskoye Pole station in northwestern Moscow, The Guardian reported.

Bobokulova could reportedly be heard yelling "for a terrorist, for your death" and "Allahu Akbar" in the video, The Guardian said, citing RBC newspaper. Authorities stated that the body of a young girl had been found in a nearby burnt-out flat.

"According to preliminary information, the child's nanny, a citizen of one of the Central Asian states born in 1977, waited for the parents and elder child to leave the flat and then, for reasons not established, murdered the infant, set fire to the flat and left the scene," the Moscow Investigative Committee said of the incident, according to BBC News.

The investigation determined that the dead child found in the flat appeared to be three or four years old, and her body showed evidence of a violent death, the news site said. The suspect was taken to psychiatric care for an examination to determine her competency.

The Russian tabloid news site Life News, which covers crime stories, stated that the nanny threatened to blow herself up after being approached by police near the metro station, according to The Guardian. She then pulled out the child's head and started screaming when authorities asked for identification.

Reuters reported that Russian security services remained on alert for a possible terrorist attack since a Russian passenger plane blew up over Egypt in October, killing all 224 people onboard. The Islamic State reportedly took responsibility for the bombing because of Russia-launched air strikes in Syria.
