A Vietnamese-American business executive has complained to the Ho Chi Minh City police that a former employee assaulted him and damaged his car.

Vi Allen Trung, 46, said on the evening of January 13 he had arrived at his house on Ton That Thuyet Street, District 4, and found more than 10 young men drinking in front of his house.

Trung said in the complaint -- which he also sent to Thanh Nien -- that one of the drinkers, Phan Duy Phong, 23, his former employee, swore at him when he stepped down from his car, and asked "What are you staring at? I'll kill you, you know?"

Without waiting for an answer, Phong approached and hit Trung, who was saved by the others before he ran into the house and locked himself in.

Phong left and soon returned with a knife, but since he could not lay hands on Trung, he scratched his car in many places with the knife and broke its windows.

The damage was worth more than VND100 million (US$4,800), Trung said.

He said there had been bad blood between the two since Phong suddenly quit his company in December after working as a marketing and delivery man for three months.

He had since come to the company several times and quarreled, he said.

The police said they summoned Phong and he confessed to attacking Trung. Investigations are continuing.
