Two tourists in Hanoi are asking for help to go home, saying they were robbed of US$400 and some of their belongings, local media reported.
Tautvydas Urbelis, 26, from Lithuania, and his unidentified girlfriend on Tuesday put up handwritten signs asking for help in English and Vietnamese in front of the Temple of Literature, a popular tourist destination in Hanoi downtown.
The notes said they are touring Asia but were robbed of their money, their map and tents on Monday night.
They were asking for any help possible.
Urbelis said they arrived in Vietnam on April 30 and their next stop was going to be China, local media reported. 
But their seven-month travel plan went bankrupt after they were robbed at a park.
Their claim has not been verified yet.  
Some media reports said the couple was asked to meet the police at a station. However, they left quickly without telling the officers their names or leaving any details.
