An old woman attacks a dangerous bank robber and a few minutes later he was arrested by the police. Yesterday an old woman helped the police to arrest a man in Zaragoza. The man had robbed a bank, but he couldn’t escape e because a brave old woman started to attack him and finally he was arrested by the police. He was a teacher of a high school called “La Azucarera”. His name is José Antonio. This robbery hasn’t been the only one that this man has committed, he had robbed more than three different banks before. We have interrogated the old woman and this is what she told us: • Journalist: What time was it? • Mrs. Philips: I think it was about at half past twelve in the morning when a strange man came into the bank. • Journalist: What happened when the strange man came into the bank? • Mrs. Philips: Suddenly the man took out a pistol from his jacket. He started to aim at everybody and shouted: I want all the money! If I don’t get it in less than three minutes, I will shoot someone! • Journalist: Did the bankers give him all the money? • Mrs. Philips: Yes, he did. We all were very frightened, especially the bankers, because they thought that he was going to kill them, so they gave him all the money. • Journalist: And then what did you do? • Mrs. Philips: When the robber turned round and was putting the money into a metal suitcase I saw him and thought: This is my opportunity, he can’t see me, so I can do it. After that I ran towards him and started to hit him on his head with my walking stick. While I was hitting him the bankers phoned the police and finally they arrived in less than five minutes. While the police were going to the bank, the bankers and the other people that were there helped me to held the robber. • Journalist: Do you know him? • Mrs. Philips: No, I don’t know him, but the police officer talk to me about the him. The told me that he was a teacher, he is called José Antonio. He has committed more than three different robberies and I feel very lucky. • Journalist: Thank you, your information is really good.

THE SHOPLIFTING CRIME
ME- Hello! My name is Noelia and I would like to report a crime. POLICE OFFICER- Yeah, sure! Could you tell me about it? Well…the thing is that last week I saw my technology teacher comitting a crime. His name is JOSÉ
What type of crime? He tried to steal a gold necklace from a shop. Ok, but…how could you see him? I’m not proud of it but I followed him. Why? Well, actually I don’t mind. Now the most important thing is we must find him. What does he look like? Mmm…he was wearing black clothes the day of the crime, but he usually wears a shirt with jeans and a pair of black shoes. He’s also got white hair. All right! I’ve written all the information you’ve told me. If you discover anything else, don’t doubt and tell me again. Ok! I hope you won’t tell JOSÉ
ANTONIO about who told you everything until he confesses. I’m a bit confused at the
moment. Yes, don’t worry! After two days… Good morning JOSÉ
ANTONIO, I have to ask you some questions. If you answer the truth we’ll finish sooner and
everything will be easier, ok? JOSÉ ANTONIO- Yes! Did you steal a gold necklace two days ago? No! Well, yes but…I felt obliged to do that! Why did you do it? Because it was my wife’s birthday and I didn’t have enough money to buy her something really beautiful, like that amazing necklace! I don’t agree with you because you can show her how much you love your wife without expensive jewellery. You can write a letter to her expressing your feelings…it’s also more romantic I think! Yes, it’s better! But, what can I do now? I don’t want to go to prison! I’ve got an idea! If you give me the necklace I will take it to the shop and you won’t go to prison. But, you’ll write your wife a letter, the most romantic letter a woman could imagine! Yes, I’ll do that! Thank you very much! I’m very grateful to you!
