Caught on Cam: Dancing Thief Steals Purse

A man with some smooth moves made off with a purse inside a Philly restaurant.

The crime isn't funny, but the surveillance video of how it happened may be more humiliating than whatever punishment the guy faces when he's caught.

Video shows the man first walking a woman to the bathroom in the back of Entree BYOB at 1608 South Street about 12:40 a.m. July 26.

While she's in the restroom, he sneaks over to a booth nearby, plucks the wallet from a woman's purse and slips into a funky dance to hide the wallet in his pants and then make his way out of the restaurant.

Police want your help if you know the guy and/or his female companion who is considered a person of interest. If you see the man, police say don't approach him -- call 911 or 215-686-TIPS.
