The Arrest of Oliver
“The next morning, they left the house and began to walk slowly along the streets. Oliver thought about what work they would do.
The Dodger and Charley walked so slowly that Oliver began to think that they did not want to go to work at all.
Suddenly the Dodger stopped walking.
“Follow me! said the Dodger to Charley and Oliver.
The boys quickly crossed the road and began to follow the old gentleman. He stopped to look at a book inside the bookshop. While he was doing this, the Dodger put his hand into the old gentleman pocket and took out a handkerchief. Then the Dodger and Charley ran away. Oliver stood on the pavement out side the shop looking at the old gentleman. Then the old gentleman realized that he did not have his handkerchief. Oliver got afraid. He decided to run away too.
“Stop thief! Stop thief!" – shouted the old man.
Other people in the street began to chase Oliver. At last a man caught Oliver.
Oliver lay on the ground. He was covered with mud and dust and his mouth was bleeding.
“Poor boy!” said the old gentleman. ”He is hurt.”
“I did that, sir,” said a man from the crowd. “I stopped him, sir.”
That moment a policeman arrived.
“Come on, get up”, said he to Oliver. He took Oliver by the jacket and they went to the police station. The old gentleman and some of the people from the crowd followed them.
