    Raided ?

    Hi,

    "does raided" make sense in this context?

    "His girlfriend raided all his money from his bank account and took off"

    Thanks

    It is understandable, but I wouldn't use it.

    We'd say

    'His girlfriend raided his bank account and took off with all his money'.

    Re: Raided ?

    Same for me. You don't raid money, you steal money. You raid an account or a bank etc.
