(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest and charge a black man with theft after he was seen stealing tefillin from a girls school bus, according to video uploaded to the Internet by crownheights.info.

Surveillance video showed how the man looked around the area before entering the school bus, which belongs to Bnos Menachem Chabad Lubavitch. The man is then seen getting off the school bus with a tefillin bag.

The incident occurred on Monday, shortly after 6:00 p.m., in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn New York.

The suspect has been able to get on the bus because unusually strong winds caused the bus doors to open.

The owner of the stolen tefillin was not identified.

Police launched an investigation into the incident, but so far, no arrests have been made.
