Woman robbed on camera – level 2

22-04-2014 07:00

A Brazilian woman gave an interview to a Brazilian news programme. Suddenly, in the middle of the interview, a young man appeared. He tried to snatch the woman’s necklace. It was interesting that the woman was talking about increased crime in the area.

The woman was not hurt, and the young man did not take the necklace. When the police showed up, the man was long gone.

The Brazilian TV then showed other robberies on film. Most of the criminals were young and they had no weapons.

Difficult words: snatch (take quickly), increased (bigger), robbery (crime of stealing something).

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