Police in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta have arrested a man and his wife after they were caught on camera beating up his 88-year-old mother earlier this week.

Officers in Cho Gao District, Tien Giang Province confirmed on Saturday they had apprehended Vo Quoc Tuan, 56, and his wife, 57-year-old Pham Thi Loan for the violence.

Footage of the incident was posted on social media on Tuesday.

According to the video clip, which was about two and a half minutes long, Loan first violently beat her mother-in-law, 88-year-old V.T.D., at their home on Monday morning.

Tuan and an unidentified young girl were also present and witnessing the beating.

The man later beat his own mother with a wooden stick and forcefully carried her to another room.

Preliminary investigation showed that D. suffers bad health condition and memory loss due to old age.

The elderly woman can only lie on her bed and is unable to relieve herself properly, which might have triggered the anger and violence.

According to officers, the footage provides sufficient evidence against the married couple and suitable punishment will be imposed upon the offenders.

D.’s daughter has taken her to her home for further care.
