OKLAHOMA CITY – “You’ve heard of ‘taking candy from a baby.'”

A man is accused of stealing money from a toddler Saturday at an Oklahoma City Walmart.

A mother had placed a $100 bill on the counter in the customer service area of the Walmart Neighborhood Market near Penn and S.W. 59th St.

Her toddler started playing with the money when a suspect ripped the cash out of the child’s hands.

Now, police are searching for the suspect, who is seen wearing a black hoodie and accompanied by two other men in a picture taken from surveillance video.

Police later released the video, showing the suspect robbing the child.

It appears he then puts the cash in his pocket and walks away as his two associates look on.
