The Ho Chi Minh City police Wednesday arrested a man for allegedly killing a 15-year-old girl who had caught him stealing from her house.

Le Van Duc, a jobless 39-year-old man with large gambling debts, broke into a neighbor's house Tuesday after familiarizing himself with the family's routine and knowing no one would be home at the time.

But Huynh Phan Ngoc Duyen returned from school at that moment, and a startled Duc strangled her to silence her.

He took her cell phone and the family's DVD player before leaving.
