Police caught a man - level 2

Police caught a man - level 2

20-05-2013 14:00

A wanted criminal was found and arrested when he was relaxing at a pool in Spain. The moment of his arrest was recorded and put on the internet.

The 31-year-old man had stolen £25,000 in the UK. He was arrested in 2009 but he managed to escape. This time, he wasn't so lucky. The operation was carried out by British and Spanish police. The team of policemen approached him slowly and quietly. It was a surprise attack. He had no chance.

Interesting words: escape (run away), carry out (do something), approach (move towards something).

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