Man catches a bank robber - level 2

A man was waiting in a bank in south London when a masked robber burst in. He waved his gun at the cashier.

Luckily, the man noticed that the robber’s gun was fake. He told the robber to leave. When the criminal did, the man chased after him. The robber was arrested and jailed for life.

The man, who is a window cleaner, was given £1,200 for his bravery.

Difficult words: masked (wearing a mask to cover your face), burst in (enter quickly), chase (to follow somebody to catch them), bravery (being brave).

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