A screaming monkey pinned a baby to the floor and attacked villagers who tried to come near it.
The animal is reported to have barged into a home in the village of Karnataka, India and tried to 'steal' the youngster.
Footage posted online shows the monkey hovering over the child as a group of locals try to distract it.
The primate tried to lift the baby but people nudge it to leave the youngster alone.
One woman pours a bag of food on the floor to tempt the animal into letting go of the small child but the animal does not fall for it.
