Woman robbed on camera – level 1

22-04-2014 07:00

This news is from Brazil. A person from a TV show films a woman. She stands on a street. She gives an interview. She talks about crime. Suddenly, something bad happens. A man tries to rob the woman. He wants to take her necklace.

The woman is fine. The man does not steal the necklace. Police come, but they are late. The man is gone. Crime is a problem in the area.

Difficult words: suddenly (quickly), rob (take something of the woman’s), necklace (nice and expensive thing you have on your neck).

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