Nguyen Xuan Hoa (L) and Tran Huu Le told police they carried out 11 bag-snatches in Hanoi
Hanoi police on Thursday arrested two men suspected of snatching a bag from a Korean woman 10 days ago.
Nguyen Xuan Hoa, 28, and Tran Huu Le, 27, told the police they carried out 10 other bag-snatches in Hanoi.
Hoa and Le, both unemployed, usually rode along streets of Hanoi looking for prey, the police said.
On Dec. 28, 2014, the duo snatched a bag from Noh Hye Young, a South Korean national in Do Dinh Thien St, Hanoi.
The bag contained VND8 million, US$280 and a Samsung smartphone, the police said.
