After spending a day running from police, a Vinh Long Province resident who allegedly played a role in kidnapping his own sister turned himself in.

Nguyen Thanh Nhut, a 21-year-old from Long An Commune, Long Ho District, Vinh Long Province, southern Vietnam gave himself up to police on Tuesday, according to Colonel Huynh Thanh Mong, vice-director of the province’s Department of Public Security.

Nhut is currently being held in custody while police continue to investigate the kidnapping of his elder sister, Vo Thi Thuy Hang.  

According to the provincial police investigation unit, several individuals were involved in the kidnapping, including Nguyen Van Tien, 29, Nguyen Van Vinh, 29, Nguyen Van Dung, 29, all of whom live in Tan Thanh District, Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province, about 125km from Ho Chi Minh City. 

Duong Vinh Tien, a 35-year-old from Dong Nai Province, and Nhut, the victim’s younger brother, were also involved. 

Tran Le Du Thinh, who went by the moniker Nguyen Minh Tuan, died during the incident.

At the police station, the suspects admitted to kidnapping Hang on behalf of V.T.K.C, 53, the victim’s mother, due to her disapproval of her daughter living with Tran Ngoai Giao.

Police have charged six members of the kidnap gang, including the mother, with illegally abducting a person, according to updated news.

Giao is accused of committing murder.

At noon on November 15, a gang of six carrying tear gas and batons arrived at Tam Giao Coffee Shop in a car registered in Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province.

The coffee shop is located along National Highway No. 53 in Long An Commune, Long Ho District, Vinh Long Province.

The gang of thugs rushed into the coffee shop and forced Hang, who is the shop owner, into the car before driving away.

Giao, Hang’s husband, who had been harvesting coconuts in the garden behind the coffee shop, heard the wife’s loud scream for help.

He grabbed a spiked stick and rushed to rescue her.

Giao used the sharp stick to confront the gang, which resulted in the death of Thinh and two others being injured.

Following the incident, Giao turned himself to local police and four of the perpetrators were arrested.

The investigation is ongoing and additional information will be released as it becomes available.
