All of a sudden, the door of the jeweller's shop burst open in front of him. A masked man hurried away, desperately clinging to a huge sack upon his shoulder. The shop owner yelled and screamed, alarm bells were ringing everywhere.
He took up pursuit immediately, tracking close behind the thief, jumping over fences, climbing up and down walls, breathing heavily.
Finally, he catched up with the masked man, who leaned against a wall, exhausted.
"Did you get everything?", he asked him.
