A Facebook post of a man stealing a phone in plain sight has been circulating online since Sunday.

In the video shared, the man walks by a mobile phone shop but notices the shop assistant engrossed in watching a video or playing a game on his own phone. The man then proceeds to walk by another time, just to confirm that the shop assistant is completely occupied. He then reaches just behind the shop assistant and steals a mobile phone, knocking down another display item which drops to the shelf below in the process, and bolts. The shop assistant does not notice any of this and remains occupied with his watching his mobile phone.

The Facebook post was shared by netizen Daniel who works for the same mobile company, but at another branch.
