Well, they need a good wash, but...

You deftly follow the little thief through crooked alleys and across a rooftop. The stash is hidden in a filthy back yard occupied by a sorrow-spider, but it is no match for your stealth and cunning.


Nobody mentioned spiders!

The urchins’ pet sorrow-spider sidles out from its hiding place in a coal scuttle and leaps for your eyes. You make it out of their yard with your vision intact, but they saw you coming. Another time, perhaps.
