A woman donned in a hoodie and sunglasses was caught on video leaping across the counter of a Burger King in the Bronx to try stealing cash from the register — but after an employee pulled her off the counter and toward the kitchen, the woman soon was able to casually walk out of the restaurant.

What are the details?

The suspect placed an order inside the Burger King on Grand Concourse near East 150th Street in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the Bronx around 3 p.m. Tuesday, police told the New York Post.

Video shows her retrieving cash and handing it to the worker behind the counter — but the Post said that when the employee opened the register to look for change, the woman lunged for cash in the drawer and got about $250, police and the video indicated.

Video shows another employee rushing over and pulling the woman off the counter and heading to the back of the store. Newsweek said the woman was carried toward the kitchen.

The clip then cuts to the woman walking back to the counter, hopping back over it, and casually walking out of the restaurant.

Workers managed to grab back the cash, the Post said.

Anything else?

One of the employees, a 23-year-old man, suffered a cut on his head during the struggle with the woman but refused medical attention, the paper reported.

Police are trying to track down the suspect, described as in her 20s, around 5-foot-7-inches tall, with a dark complexion and slim build, the Post said.

She was last seen wearing black sunglasses, a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and black sneakers, the paper added.
