Police in Hanoi have two men in custody following the beating death of a police officer who died late Tuesday in hospital.
Nguyen Van Thuy, 28, and Nguyen Quang Duyen, 30, were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly attacking Lt. Do Van Hoan, according to investigators at Hanoi police department.
The police are looking for another suspect in the beating.
Thuy and Duyen claimed they were driving on a street in Quoc Oai Dist. on Tuesday evening when the officer, who was riding a bike, apparently refused to give way to their car.
Hoan, 29, was going home after work and not in uniform at that time.
The suspects said they got mad and when they could pass Hoan, they forced him to stop and start assaulting him.
They only stopped and fled when some passers-by intervened.
The passers-by rushed Hoan to a local hospital. However he succumbed to his injuries late that night.
