Three masked thugs appear completely unfazed while stealing two motorbikes despite being openly videoed by a woman.
The footage captures the men, who have their faces covered, stealing a red and black Keeway 125 motorbike on Stuart Road in Walton.
It happened in broad daylight at around 2.40pm on Thursday, May 6, in front of a number of witnesses who managed to film the theft.
A woman greets the three men as they are leading the motorbikes off the property and says 'excuse me, thank you boys, it's on video.'
She adds: "Will you leave that bike there please. That's not your bike. They are not your bikes. Put it down. Boys your on video."
"Boys they're not your bikes, this is unfair. You've taken these bikes from people that need them."
Completely unperturbed by the woman or the fact they are on camera the men ignore the woman and continue to attempt to get the motorbikes to start.
The three are recorded bickering with each other as they struggle to get one of the motorbikes going.
One of them says: "Lad it won't start lad. Hurry up bro."
When another one of the thieves makes off on the red Keeway 125 motorbike, another adds: "Wait lad."
The remaining two men try to get the black Keeway 125 motorbike to go but when hot wire attempts fails they run off wheeling it.
Police said on Saturday, May 8, a 17-year-old was arrested in relation to a separate matter and upon searching his address the stolen Keeway motorbike was found.
It is not clear whether the two incidents are linked.
A Merseyside police spokesperson said: "We were contacted at 2.40pm on Thursday 6th May following reports a red and black Keeway 125 motorbike had been stolen from outside a property in Stuart Road in Walton.
