Police chased down and arrested two men in downtown Ho Chi Minh on Tuesday soon after they snatched a cell phone from a foreign tourist and fled.

Tran Phuong Nhat Tam, 35, and Tran Thanh An, 34, used the old trick of driving close to the victim on their motorbike on Cong Quynh Street in District 1 and grabbed the phone.

An officer said a patrol group in the area gave hot chase and caught the duo a kilometer from the crime spot.

He said the group had been following Tam and An because they looked suspicious.
