Teenager steals an iPad – level 2

31-08-2015 15:00

A four-year-old child was waiting for his mother in a salon in Florida. He was playing games on an iPad. This was in July.

A teenager was standing next to him when he snatched the iPad from the child and ran away. The police released the video and a description of the thief. They also offered $3,000 for information which would lead to his arrest.

This month, police arrested the 16-year-old thief.

Difficult words: snatch (to steal; take quickly), description (information about how a person or something looks), thief (a person who steals).

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

How would you punish the teenager?
