Police in Ho Chi Minh City have arrested a group of debt collectors for stabbing a local resident to death as they forced a family to pay up earlier this week.

Officers in District 3 apprehended a 28-year-old man named M. and some other suspects for alleged murder, a source close to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper confirmed on Saturday.

The victim was V.T.Q., 29, who lived with his parents on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street in Ward 2, District 3.

According preliminary information, Q.’s mother, 57-year-old V.N.O., previously borrowed money from a group of unidentified men.

The creditors arrived at the house on Thursday evening and demanded that the woman pay up.

An argument then broke out at around 7:30 pm and resulted in violence, during which Q. was stabbed and critically injured.

He was admitted to the Binh Dan Hospital in District 3 for emergency treatment but later succumbed to the wound.

An autopsy showed that the victim was stabbed only once but the injury was fatal.

Police officers arrived at the scene shortly after being notified and found two knives and a motorbike that the debt collectors had left behind.

Following an investigation, officers were able to locate the suspects and arrested them at an apartment building in District 4 on Friday evening.

At the police station, M. claimed he was the one who attacked the victim with a knife.

Further investigation is ongoing.
