An old woman goes to a pharmacy. She gets what she needs. She goes home.

Somebody follows her home. The woman is at her front door. A man comes up to her. He takes her bag. He does this very quickly. The poor woman falls on the ground.

The bag is found later. Nothing is missing. The old lady is fine. The criminal is a young man. The police ask people for help.

Difficult words: pharmacy (shop where you can buy medicines), poor (not lucky), be missing (nothing is gone, everything is there).

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