Here is news from Florida. A man enters a shop. The cashier welcomes him. The female woman cashier is behind the counter. She does not know that he is a criminal.

The man hits the woman in the face. She falls to the ground. She is shocked. She tells the man to leave. She says that she is pregnant. The man gets the money from the shop and leaves.

The woman goes to hospital. Police ask people for more information.

Difficult words: cashier (the cashier takes your money when you buy something at a shop), counter (cashier’s table), pregnant (she has a baby inside her body).
