The Sketch

Image result for sketch artist

Amelia was shaken up.  She had just had her purse stolen by a robber.  She did all she could to notice his prominent features so she could describe him to police later.  She did plead with the man to leave her identification, but he took everything including the ring her Mother had left for her.  Police brought in a sketch artist to draw a portrait of the robber.  His salient features made him easier to identify and he was quickly captured.  Luckily most of Amelia’s belongings were returned to her, minus the twenty-dollar bill she had tucked in her wallet.
