A BIZARRE video shows the moment an elderly flower seller in a pub slips her hand down a woman’s top while she’s photographing pals.
The “Rose Woman” passes a flower to a couple and as they pose for a snap puts her hand inside Abbie Morley’s top.
The apparent theft bid went completely unnoticed at the time and only emerged when Declan Teasdale checked his footage.
Declan, from Middlesbrough, North Yorks, posted the footage to social media with the caption: “I can’t believe the Rose Woman just shot her hand down Abbie’s t**s.”
Declan added the hashtag “top robber”.
The clip, filmed at the town’s Central Bar last weekend, begins with Abbie sitting down while the flower seller hands a rose to another girl.
Abbie, who is facing away from the woman, takes a picture as the woman with the rose poses with a man.
The video clearly shows the flower seller slip a hand inside Abbie’s top while staring straight ahead at the couple being photographed.
Most viewers believed the flower seller was searching for cash.
David Mackenzie wrote: “I’ve heard of pickpockets but bra-pickers, that’s a new one.”
Claire Louisa wrote: “She will have been looking for money as most girls put it down there. Cheeky cow.”
Susan Coates added: “It’s a distraction technique they use when robbing you. They touch you everywhere, filthy dog.”
Deb Lou Theakston wrote: “Even though she will have been looking for money I’d have put her through the window.”
Abbie and Declan later confirmed they had no idea at the time they were in the middle of an attempted theft.
Declan wrote: “We didn’t even notice till I started watching them back.”
