failed hold-up, stormed the bus
The men, who were being chased by police after a failed hold-up, stormed the bus near the Manila City Hall.
Earlier, children were seen waving from inside the bus, but they did not appear to have been harmed.
There were no details released on the ages of the children but the ones that could be seen through the bus windows appeared to be in early grades or pre-schoolers.
Please explain the bold words/group of words
