(Scroll down for video) A woman couldn’t control herself when she saw a young girl selling candy, police in California said.

The San Francisco Police Department said that an 8-year-old girl who was one in three children selling candy on Monday afternoon, was robbed by the woman.

Surveillance video from a nearby store showed the woman police described as African-American, 40 to 50 years old, wearing a black shirt and orange skirt.

The woman decided to rob the girl because she did not have enough money for a beer. Investigators said that the woman approached the young girl and asked her for change so she can pay her bus fare.

She ended up grabbing the child’s arm, twisting it until she dropped the bag of money. She took the bag and fled. The girl suffered minor injuries.

The children were selling candy for a school fundraising.
