Newly released home surveillance footage captured the shocking moments that a teen allegedly abducted a 4-year-old from his Texas bedroom — before the child was found dead in the street.

The video, obtained and published by The Daily Mail, allegedly shows suspect Darriynn Brown, 18, breaking into Cash Gernon’s bedroom around 5 a.m. Saturday morning and taking the boy, who had been sleeping next to his twin brother.

He appears to momentarily hesitate before picking up Cash, and leaving the room.

Security footage allegedly also captured the teen returning to the bedroom about two hours later — after police said Cash had been killed — and hovering over his brother, Carter, but leaving without waking the boy, the Daily Mail reported.

Court documents have alleged that Brown was caught on surveillance footage snatching Cash.

He is charged with kidnapping and theft in connection to Cash’s death. He is being held on $750,000 bail. 

Additional charges are expected following a forensic analysis.
