Girl at a cash machine - level 2
Police released a security camera video. An 18-year-old girl was using a cash machine when a masked man burst in.
He was armed with a large kitchen knife. He demanded she withdraw £100. The teenage girl was terrified and complied with his demand. She was told to wait for two minutes before leaving as the robber ran away.
The man is described as white, in his early 20s, 6 feet (1.8 metres) tall and with dark brown hair. The girl was shocked but not hurt. Police are asking for people’s help.
Difficult words: burst in (enter quickly), armed (to hold a weapon), withdraw (get money from the cash machine), comply (do what you are asked to do).
