    Hi everybody, I'd like to know how to translate the next sentence to english "Esto es un robo". The situation is thiefs getting into a bank to rob it. Here goes my attempt : "This is an assault", I'm not sure about the word "assault" because I think It's used in a more military context, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks in advance and free feel to correct any mistake I could possibly made while writting this tread.

    Yo creo que es mejor "this is a robbery".

    Saludos, t.
