Disturbing surveillance footage from a restaurant in Norwood, South Africa shows a 7-year-old girl stealing a phone out of a woman’s handbag seemingly at the command of her mother.

On the video, the mother is seen looking at the purse of the soon-to-be victim, then looking back at her young daughter and nodding affirmatively.

The young girl then gets up, stands behind the victim’s chair, reaches into the victim’s purse and pulls out a white phone. The child returns to the table and slips the phone inside her sweatshirt. The daughter, mother and one other friend immediately leave the restaurant.

Neither of the women seen in the video have been identified. Here’s the footage from the restaurant:
