TULSA, Okla. (WJW/CNN) -- Police in Tulsa are searching for a man who allegedly burglarized a flower shop while accompanied by a young child.

KTUL reports that it happened Jan. 7 at an East Tulsa florist shop, and it was caught on surveillance video.

"It's disturbing," said Officer Danny Bean. "You see a man...I don't know if it's his child or not, we don't know that...but he brings a very young child who is obviously disturbed at it, and you can tell she kind of gets worried, and she's trying to find him, and she's running around trying to find him."

It took the man several minutes until he finally found a way into the store. He got away with only a toolbox.

The girl is seen dutifully following the man around, and several times she reached for him, but the man almost sees right through her.

As the two walk off into a grassy field, the man acknowledges the little girl, picking her up and carrying her off.
