A commune law official in the southern Vietnamese province of Long An is being investigated for sexual harassment after a woman fruit-juice vendor complained that he tried to molest her in his office Tuesday.

Authorities in Hung Dien B Commune, Tan Hung District, Thursday told Tuoi Tre newspaper that Truong Tan Tai, 26, is being questioned following a complaint by L.T.B.V., 31, to the local police.

She said Tai had come to her shop Tuesday afternoon and asked her to deliver two glasses of juice to his room in the commune People's Committee office.

When she came, Tai did not take the glasses at the door, but made her bring them to his table.

She saw a pornographic movie on a screen in front of Tai.

When she was about to leave, Tai rushed to the door, locked it, grabbed her, and pushed her on to the floor.

She managed to wriggle free and tried to call her husband.

When Tai tried to grab her phone, she opened the door and ran out.

A source in the local administration said they are awaiting the investigation results and would take appropriate action.
