Police in Ho Chi Minh City are detaining a local man who killed another after their motorcycles were involved in a non-injury crash that reportedly left scratches on his newly-bought vehicle.

The arrested man, Diep Cam Minh, 47, is facing murder charges in the wake of a minor traffic incident that should have been handled in a friendly manner.

On October 31 morning, the motorcycle of a man identified as 37-year-old Nguyen Minh Phuong hit that of Minh but Phuong kept riding on the street, law enforcement said.

With his engine revving, Minh drew abreast of Phuong, forcing him to the curb and stabbing him with a switchblade.

Despite the injury, Phuong attempted to kept hold of Minh’s motorcycle, who then hit and pushed him for a while before he eventually fell to the ground.

Minh ran away, and members of the public took Phuong to the hospital but he died of severe wounds later on the same day.

On Monday, Minh was apprehended at a coffee shop in Ho Chi Minh City.

The man said his brand new motorcycle was scratched by Phuong but the victim refused to stop to solve the problem.

Minh then got into an angry public argument with Phuong and knifed him in a moment of lost control, the nabbed man added.

The municipal police said multiple cases of killing, property damage and deliberate infliction of injury have been reported in recent times and they all stemmed from minor spat between individuals driving on the streets.
