Old lady is attacked - level 2

19-06-2014 07:00

An old woman went to her local pharmacist. Someone followed her on her way back home.

She reached her front door where a man approached her and snatched her bag. The 80-year-old lady fell on the ground. Luckily, she was not hurt seriously. People later found her bag. Nothing was missing.

A security camera filmed the moment when the man attacked the lady. The police released the video. The robber was in his late teens. Police are appealing people for any information.

Difficult words: pharmacist (person who gives you medicine), snatch (to take something from somebody quickly), robber (person who steals), appeal (ask).

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