Shocking video footage has emerged of a man and a young boy in Halloween masks appearing to steal a Samsung mobile phone from the bar of a snooker club.
The man, who was also wearing a cape, and the boy were seen holding buckets by the bar in the Lanterns Club in Folkestone, in Kent, at 6.16pm yesterday.
CCTV showed the man, dressed as a vampire, scouring the bar area, while giving orders to the child.
After lurking suspiciously near the bar for a few seconds the pair momentarily disappeared from view.
The boy was then seen appearing to snatch the Samsung S8 from the bar before running off.
The mobile phone belongs to owner Darren Smith.
