A security guard in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Duong has had his left arm chopped off by two masked men inside the parking venue of a local apartment complex.

Police in Thuan An Town, Binh Duong Province confirmed on Saturday they were hunting for the two suspects who brutally attacked Le Trung Nghia, 45, a security guard at an apartment complex in An Phu Ward.

The incident happened on Saturday night, when Nghia was on duty at the parking lot of the buildings, according to officers.

The two unidentified men arrived at the venue on their motorbike, before attacking the security guard with their machetes.

The victim did not have time to react and eventually had his left arm cut off from the elbow.

The attackers then fled the scene on their vehicle.
