A little boy was caught on camera trying to rob a medical supplies shop in Saudi Arabia with the help of his family but he aborted the attempt in the last minute.
A four-minute YouTube film published in local newspapers showed a man and two women went into the shop in the Red Sea port of Jeddah before they were followed by a little boy.
The boy waited for the adults to detract the worker’s attention before bending down and sneaking towards the cash drawer.
He struggled for a while but the drawer was apparently locked and he was then seen hurrying back out after he was warned by the woman when the worker came close.
The film showed the four-member gang later left the shop without buying anything after a failed burglary attempt.
