Woman protects her house - level 2

Woman protects her house - level 2

16-04-2014 15:00

A pair of burglars tried to steal two cars, but they could not open the house’s side door. They then went to the rear of the house and entered through the back door. This happened in England.

It was at this point that the woman who lives there attacked the burglars. The 56 year-old woman was punched in the face six times. The men then ran away without the car keys.

Difficult words: burglar (person who steals), rear (back), at this point (right then), punch (to hit with your closed hand).

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