Man tries to steal in a bank - level 3
This surveillance footage shows an audacious thief being intercepted by armed police officers after he attempted to steal a woman's money off a counter in a bank.
In Taizhou, east China, the bank's surveillance cameras show the unemployed 27-year-old walking through the building on Sunday afternoon.
He can be seen lunging to grab the money from a woman, as she prepared to deposit it, before being tackled to the ground by two armed police officers who happened to be in the bank at the time.
Bystanders can be seen looking on in shock, as the man is wrestled to the floor.
The man, who was released from prison in July 2013 after serving a seven-month sentence for burglary, has been caught and the case is currently under investigation.
Difficult words: surveillance footage (security camera video), audacious (willing to take risks), lunge (move forward suddenly), grab (take quickly), deposit (put something in somewhere to keep it safe), burglary (the crime of stealing something).
