Chinese man tries to steal - level 2

10-12-2014 07:00

A man tried to steal a bank’s money. He waited for the bank’s armoured van to arrive. Two men left the van and walked towards the bank. When they were walking through the revolving door, the robber suddenly attacked them.

He sprayed petrol in the face of one man and kicked the other one to the ground. He shot him in the leg. He took the bag of cash, which weighed more than 85 kilograms, and dragged it outside. He tried to put it on his motorbike, but another man from the van shot him. Police arrived at the scene and arrested the 29-year-old robber.

Difficult words: armoured (to be covered with metal plates for protection), revolving door (a type of door which goes in a circle as people pass through it), drag (to pull something with difficulty).

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