Victoria police have released bizarre footage of an unsuccessful burglary in Brighton.
CCTV footage shows the man breaking into the North Road home at around 3:40pm on Tuesday January 16.
He then crawls and slides across the floor on his belly before attempting to remove two heavy safes.
A neighbour disturbed the would-be thief who took off over a fence empty handed.
The man is believed to be Caucasian, around 30 to 40-years-old and was last seen wearing a black cap, T-short and shorts and black Nike runners with a tick.
