This is the moment a monkey took a bank worker hostage - by sitting on his head.

The animal wandered into Axis Bank at Nirman Vihar, India, and climbed onto the man, who was too scared to move.

The creature showed his sharp teeth to the onlookers who filmed the encounter.

One local said: “The customers watched this incident with amusement and they laughed at the action of the monkey.

“He also tried to hump the workers head a few times, before leaving.”
