The Ho Chi Minh City police have arrested two Chinese nationals for an alleged carjacking attempt using knives and fake guns.
Guo Chang Ming, 33, and Chen Zhi Hua, 23, drove a motorbike up to a parked car in District 7 Wednesday afternoon, and one of them opened the car door and put a toy gun to the driver’s head.
The driver, a 48-year-old man, realized it was a fake gun and fought back.
The other Chinese then drew a knife, but security guards from a nearby apartment building overpowered them and handed them over to the police.
VnExpress reported that the duo had entered Vietnam illegally.
