Car hits a shop - level 2

Car hits a shop - level 2

21-03-2014 07:00

A car was stolen on Monday the 10th February at an English supermarket. Two days after, the car was used in a shop robbery.

The car hit the shutter of the shop and broke the glass doors. One of the robbers moved the shutter back, and the second one got inside. He stole what he could while the other one kept watch.

The suspects were white, and one of them had an Adidas jacket with dark trousers. Police say the robbers caused a lot of damage to the shop.

Difficult words: robbery (the crime of stealing something), shutter (metal covering outside of the door), suspect (person who is thought to be a criminal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
