Footage has emerged of a wannabe cat burglar crawling his way through a Melbourne home while attempting to steal two safes.

The man can be seen breaking through the back door of the Brighton home on January 16, before sliding across the living room while pushing a large safe, in a likely attempt to avoid CCTV cameras.

The would-be thief was interrupted by a neighbour with police releasing the bizarre footage of the man crawling on Wednesday.
