Police in Ho Chi Minh City have arrested three local men linked to the stabbing of three Singaporean tourists at a downtown bar last month.
A police source on Wednesday confirmed that the suspects were taken into custody on Monday. Two of them are 19 years old and the other is 29.
Initial investigation found a Vietnamese group started a fight with the Singaporeans at a crowded bar on Cong Quynh Street in District 1 on the night of February 27, after one of the foreigners collided with them during a dance without apologizing.
They pulled out knives, stabbed the foreigners and also threw bottles and glasses at the victims.
A security guard managed to stop the attack and send the Singaporeans to hospital, who were bleeding heavily. The trio had recovered and left for Singapore on March 2, police said.
Police tracked down the three suspects using security footage at the bar and nearby shops.
They are looking for more people involved in the attack.
