Police are checking if a man caught on video brutally abusing small kids, believed to be in Cambodia, comes from a Vietnamese province as reported.

Officers in An Giang Province, located in the southern part of Vietnam, have been searching for the man since the surfacing of several videos capturing him torturing the kids, Bui Be Tu, director of the provincial police department, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, on Wednesday.

Tu said he had not yet received any notice from Cambodian police who are carrying out an investigation.

The man in the clips is believed to be Nguyen Thanh Dung, who reportedly hails from An Giang.

An Giang police are still looking into whether there is any man by that name in the province and, if there is, he has ever come back to Vietnam from Cambodia, the police chief said.

No clear information on that man has been released so far.

Several videos have surfaced online in recent times of the man beating different kids, strangling them and torturing them with what appears to be a stun gun for no reason, outraging viewers in Vietnam.

He was said to abuse the kids in Cambodia despite their loud cry. The man was reported to come from An Giang.

In one of the clips posted on YouTube on Monday, he was heard by Tuoi Tre News staff speaking Vietnamese when using what appears to be a stun gun to hurt a child.

The following video may be truly disturbing to some so viewer discretion is strongly advised:
