A sergeant from the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau has been removed from the police force after a guest house owner reported he had demanded prostitutes.
Ca Mau's deputy police chief Vo Minh Phuong said Sunday that Luong Tan Ben was stationed in Thoi Binh District where he often stayed at a local guest house with friends but never paid, even for the prostitutes he asked the house owner to procure.
Prostitution is illegal in Vietnam.
The guesthouse's owner, Ha Thi Lien, finally rejected his demand on the night of July 26.
But Lien did not file a police report until around ten armed men attacked her guesthouse some ten days later, running their motorbikes into an altar, damaging her bedroom with machetes, while issuing verbal death threats.
The woman said she recognized one man among the attackers who had previously stayed with Ben at her guesthouse.
Officer Phuong said Ben will be punished further if it is established that he was involved in the attack.
