The train was crowded. I was worried because my bag's zip was not working.

I noticed a middle aged man eyeing my bag.

The train entered a tunnel. When there was light again, a few clothes were missing. The man was going towards the other side. I shouted. A crowd gathered and beat him up. However, he managed to escape.

At the next station, as I was about to get down, I noticed something stuck at my shoes. They were my clothes, which had fallen from the open zip of the bag while the train was crossing the tunnel.
