A woman was violently attacked at an eatery in the central city of Da Nang after she told a man he could have her dish if he felt hungry.

The assailant had complained about not being served first despite having arrived earlier than the female diner.

The victim, 33-year-old Tran Thi Quynh Nhu, is still recovering from multiple injuries at the General Hospital of Da Nang.

Nhu was assaulted on Sunday while having dinner at an eatery on Pham Cu Luong Street in Son Tra District.

When she arrived at the eatery, which sold ‘banh xeo,’ or crispy Vietnamese pancakes, her assailant was already inside waiting for his meal.

“It was pretty crowded at the time, and the owner must have been confused because I was served before the man despite coming later,” Nhu recalled.

When the man loudly complained about it, Nhu politely went over to his table with her dish and told him “you can have mine if you’re hungry.”

No sooner had Nhu turned around than she received a violent kick to her back, which made her fall to the ground.

The man than repeatedly kicked Nhu on her body and head, leaving her with a bruised eye, broken teeth, and a sinus fracture among other flesh injuries.

The attacker even threatened Nhu that he had relatives who work in the police force so it was no use for her to call police officers.

Local police later identified the assailant as Nguyen Tran Vinh Khang, 22, a resident of Cam Le District.

Khang has been summoned by police for questioning and investigation into the assault.
