Men tried to steal money – level 1

Men tried to steal money – level 1

15-03-2013 06:00

In the middle of a hot day in Sydney, three thieves tried to steal money from a car. But they didn’t steal anything. A man on the other side of the street filmed the whole situation.

The thieves shot one man from the security but the men from security didn’t die. There were two men from security and they didn’t give any money to the thieves. The thieves had to go away in a car which was driven by a fourth man. Police are now looking for the thieves.

Interesting words: thieves (people who steal), shot (past from shoot), security (people who protect cars or buildings).

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