SECTION C
[10 marks] [Time suggested: 20 minutes] Read the text below and complete the following task. I was in a shopping mall buying a pair of shoes to replace the old ones. As I was heading to the clothes department, I caught sight of a woman and a young boy standing suspiciously close to a frail looking old woman. The lady gave a quick glance around them and nodded to the young boy. At the second nod, the young boy carefully put his hand into the old lady’s handbag and took out her purse. She didn’t notice of what had happened. I stood there stunned. Still unsure of what action to take, I decided to follow them as they were heading towards the escalator. When I saw two security guards at the other end, I decided to take action. I caught hold of the woman’s arm and it took her by surprise. She tried to run away but I managed to tighten my grip to stop her. Seeing a small commotion on the escalator, the security guards quickly made way towards us. Then, I calmly told the guards what had happened and they managed to find the stolen purse in the woman’s handbag. One of the security guards took the woman and the young boy to their office for further action. The other one asked for my assistance to find the old lady. After searching for her for 10 minutes, we managed to locate her. She was at the cashier counter and was having difficulty to find her purse. We returned it to her and she was very grateful. She even offered me some money but I declined. I didn’t do anything much actually, just doing my job as a Good Samaritan.
