Man tries to steal a Porsche - level 2

17-11-2015 07:00

A man tried to steal a convertible Porsche in London. He cut open the canvas roof of the car and got inside. The car’s alarm went off.

The man wanted to drive away with the car, but he was not successful, so he got back out and left. All this happened in broad daylight. Some people saw him and a security camera filmed him.

Later that same day, the man stole some clothing.

Police are asking people for information about this man.

Difficult words: convertible (a car with a roof that you can fold back or remove), canvas (a strong cloth), go off (to start making a sound), broad daylight (during the day).

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