Strange robbery in North London - level 2
A security camera filmed an unusual robbery in a shop in North London. The criminal entered the shop and started touching and talking to the shopkeeper.
Within a few seconds, the shopkeeper froze. He seemed to be fascinated. He did not know what was happening. The robber went through the man’s pockets and stole the day’s takings. The whole robbery took only 50 seconds.
After the criminal left, the man realised what happened. He was unaware of the quick robbery when it was happening.
Difficult words: shopkeeper (the owner and manager of a shop), takings (the amount of money earned by a business), unaware (when you do not know about something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
