Crime ( theft, burglar, robbery etc. )


  • The robbers brandished their weapons and disfigured he entire luxurious interior of the jewellery shop. 
  • With a deadly glint in his eye, he motioned the victims to keep quiet.
  • The suspicious looking man drew a menacing knife from under his cloak, threatening his startled victim.
  • The entire bank fell into a nerve-wrecking silence after the robber fired a series of shots with his gun. 
  • Bullet whizzed over our heads. 
  • Informations tumbled out of our mouth incoherently as we reported the crime to the police. 

  • The police were in hot pursuit of the fleeing robber. In his panic, the robber ran helter-skelter as he headed to the nearest exit. This proved to be a costly mistake for him as the police officers gave chase like a group of Olympic athletes. In no time, they had caught up with him and immediately cornered him to one side. 
  • The burglar sensed that he was not alone. He spun around and saw me. He hurriedly put down the vase and grabbed a nearby baseball bat, lunging at me with it. Fortunately, I managed to dodge the attack. I let my heavy haversack which I was carrying off my shoulders onto my hands I swung it with all my might and slammed it into the burglar's stomach. He staggered backwards and collapsed with a loud "thud" in a heap on the floor. 
  • Out of the blue, I noticed a burly, suspicious stranger pacing about in  remote corner of the shop. At first, I assumed that he was a little weird so I did not pay much attention to him, not until a gleaming sharp knife appeared in his firm hand. I gasped. To my horror, he slowly advanced towards me, as if he might attempt to launch his attack at any moment I clutched my chest as a surge of intense fear engulfed me 
  • Two masked robbers, armed with daggers, entered the jewellery shop stealthily in the middle of the night. Never did they expect that the police had already surrounded the building. They smashed the glass displays and stuffed the glittering jewellery into a bag Just as they were about to make their escape, the whole place was swarmed with policemen. Beads of perspiration trickled down their foreheads as the panic-stricken robbers fled.
  • Bile rose in the back of my throat as the robber held me at knife point. My heart thumped furiously against my ribs and a loud buzzing sound vibrated in my eardrums. The masked robber smiled with amusement at my apparent fear. 
  • The two men wrestled and rolled on the floor engaged in a precarious struggle. The valiant passer-by held the robber's hand in a vice-like grip, preventing him from using the knife. After some twisting, he managed to unarm the robber. 
  • As I approached my apartment, I heard sounds around the corner of my neighbour's apartment. I proceeded slowly and quietly towards the their apartment, and was surprised to see the main door ajar. Wild thoughts raced through my mind. I gingerly swung open the door and saw that the living room was in disarray. Drawers were ransacked, furnitures were toppled over. What confirmed my suspicion was the sinister looking stranger standing in the middle of the room.
