Men tried to steal money – level 2

Men tried to steal money – level 2

15-03-2013 06:00

In the middle of a hot day in Sydney, three men tried to rob a car but enjoyed little success. A man on the other side of the street filmed the whole situation.

The robbers shot and injured one of two security guards but the security guards kept protecting the car and refused to hand over any money to the robbers. After some time the robbers had to leave the scene in a car driven by a fourth man without any cash. Police are now hunting for the four men.

Interesting words: rob (steal money from a car or a bank), robber (somebody who steals), refuse (say “no” to something).

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