Could I ask somebody to check my letter, please? :) I need help!!! The topic is: Las night a very unusual event happened.Write a statement descibing what you saw. And the Assignment type is: Witness Statement.
Last night, I couldn’t sleep and decided to go for a walk along Green Road about 12.00 p.m. The night was pretty quiet, however, it was dreadfully because I didn’t even see people around The street lamps was turned on, so there was no problem to notice somebody. I didn’t really pay attention to the cars standing on the curb. There was nothing terribly in it. However, maybe I should have, because the cars were big, black with dimmed windows.
When I passed them by, I heard strange voices and steps. I quietly turned over and saw five men checking something in a jewellery shop. I was scared stiff however, I decided to get closer and see what is going on. I was hidden in a bush, next to the event. I spotted a man holding a gun and others looking around for something. I couldn’t see them very well, because of the dark, but they had black masks on theirs faces. Even I had problem with breathing properly, because of the fear. Suddenly, I realised that one man is missing..
Unfortunately, the story came to the end. I lost my consciousness and woke up after the burglary by night. I had to faint because of the explosion they did.
The next day I went to police to give an account of the burglary. The police asked me many questions, however, I wasn’t able to answer yet.

The night was pretty quiet, however, it- either put a full-stop or a semi-colon before 'however'
around The street- punctuation
nothing terribly in it- unclear meaning and it shouldn't be an adverb
scared stiff however,- repeat mistake with 'however'
I was hidden- I hid
to the event- scene
Even I had- I even had
realised that one man is missing..- tense and use three dots
the story came to the end- did it? How about 'that was all I remember'
by night- preposition
I had to faint- I had fainted
explosion they did- delete 'they did'
