Six men wanted to steal two motorbikes from a shop in London. The men went to the shop. They started to take the motorbikes. The motorbikes are expensive. One motorbike costs 25 000 pounds.

One man from the shop saw the men who tried to take the bikes. He ran to them. He took one man down.

The gang was angry. More people came to help the man from the shop. After some time the gang went away. They took nothing.
