The difference between steal and rob

 

Hello! What is the difference between "steal" and "rob"? If nobody replies, I will explain this in a couple of weeks or so.

Do you know of any other words with a similar meaning?

Re: [Polseguera] The difference between steal and rob

 

You rob somebody or a place of something, but you steal something from somebody.

Examples:
Someone robbed me (of my money) yesterday. / I was robbed yesterday. (passive sentence)
He stole a pullover from the shop round the corner a week ago.
He is in prison for robbing a bank.
She stole his car.
