Robbery in Santiago – level 2

21-02-2023 15:00

Three individuals aged 16, 17, and 20 entered a watch shop in Santiago, Chile. They threatened the staff and robbed the shop.

Then they attacked a woman and stole her car. She spoke to the media about the incident. At first, she did not want to give them the car. She even kicked them. One man hit her in the leg and another showed her a gun. When he showed her the gun, that was it.

Police followed the car and managed to stop it. They surrounded it and arrested the men. The police shot one of them.

Difficult words: threaten (if you threaten somebody, you make him or her do something by force), staff (the people who work somewhere), rob (to steal things from a place).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What was the motive of the men in the watch shop, the woman being robbed, and the one man being shot?
