Police in the southern province of Binh Duong near Ho Chi Minh City Tuesday arrested a dog thief for allegedly electrocuting a militiaman with a stun gun while being taken to a police station.
To Khanh Long, 26, from neighboring Dong Nai Province will be handed over to the Dong Nai police for investigation.
On Tuesday afternoon Long was caught red-handed collecting the bodies of some dogs he had poisoned at a residential area in Binh Duong’s An Son Commune.
While a group of commune police officers and militiamen were taking him to a police station, Long pointed a stun gun (used by dog thieves to disable dogs with an electric shock) in the face of a militiaman, who immediately passed out.
Long fled and jumped into the Saigon River but was soon apprehended.
