Gang tried to steal two motorbikes – level 2, A12
Six men tried to steal two motorbikes from a London shop. Two men entered the shop. Then the rest of the gang joined them. They started to take the motorbikes which are worth around 25 000 pounds each.
Their attempt to steal the motorbikes was stopped when a shop worker noticed them. He ran to attack the thieves and managed to push one of them to the ground.
People from the shop and the public fought the robbers for a while. The gang eventually left the scene empty handed.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Interesting words: be worth (have value), attempt (act of trying), the public (people in the street), eventually (after a long time), empty handed (with nothing in hands).
