A long, long lane. One man was running out like hell, followed close behind by another one, who was shouting, “Get him! Get him!”|
>> "stop him" makes better sense here if it is to catch the man running away.
>> it would suffice to just say a man is running, followed by another man shouting...
On hearing the noise, the policeman on his beat dashed over, grabbed the first man who had just rushed out of the lane, and pressed him down onto the ground quickly and unhesitatingly. Then he asked the second man, “What’s up? He…?”
>> 巡警 patrol officer.
>> you need only to describe what the officer did after he heard the shouting.
>> the officer rushed to the other open end of the lane and caught the man there.
>> 按倒在地 push sb. over the ground
>> 不由分说 without a word
>> 怎么回事？what's happened?
>> 他…… what did he...
The pursuer panted, “He, he refused to treat us to anything after getting the first prize.”
>> "after getting the first prize" can be made simple: after he got the first prize, or after he hit the jackpot(!)
>> "he refused to treat us to anything" can be shortened, eg, he said no treat.
