The Ho Chi Minh City police Saturday arrested six men for allegedly killing a man and stealing his motorbike.

Tran Ngoc Em, Huynh Thanh Sang, Cao Thanh Tam, Tran Quoc Anh, Nguyen Van Hai Phuong, and Tran Quang Hai are all aged between 14 and 21.

The victim, Nguyen Ngoc Vuong, 22, was sitting in an empty piece of land in Tan Chanh Hiep Ward, District 12, with his girlfriend -- identified only as H -- on October 23 when the six approached him and demanded they hand over their money, according to Senior Lieutenant Colonel Le Ngoc Phuong.

Finding that they had no money, the robbers asked for their motorbike and cell phones.

When H cried for help, Em took out a knife and stabbed Vuong in the chest before fleeing.

Vuong was taken to hospital where he died.

The police are investigating further.
