comment the use of rob with cars
@Masha It's probably a bank burglary in most US jurisdictions. The US statute for bank robbery reads "Whoever, by force and violence, or by intimidation, takes, or attempts to take, from the person or presence of another, ... of, any bank, credit union, or any savings and loan association; ... Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years." It requires persons to be present.

comment Why isn't “chez” used as a preposition in English?
To English speakers (who don't know French), chez is roughly equivalent to maison.
