Police in the south-central Vietnamese province of Khanh Hoa have captured a man for fatally stabbing another person following a traffic accident over three weeks ago.

The provincial Department of Public Security confirmed on Saturday it had arrested Tran Quoc Dung, 24, who hails from Nha Trang City, which is Khanh Hoa's capital.

Dung is the prime suspect in the murder of 44-year-old Nguyen Van Luc.

According to preliminary information, Dung was carrying his girlfriend on a motorbike when he collided with a motorcycle ridden by Luc in an alley in Nha Trang at around 11:00 pm on February 5.

An argument then broke out between Luc and the couple.

Dung ended up stabbing Luc with a knife, killing him on the spot.

The couple then left the scene, leaving behind a pair of slippers, a crash helmet, and a cap.

Local residents discovered Luc’s body alongside his motorbike later that night and reported the case to police officers.

Police have examined the scene and collected CCTV footage to facilitate their investigation.

Dung’s girlfriend – 23-year-old T.T.M.D. – turned herself in to local police a few days after the incident and was taken into custody.

Meanwhile, Dung had remained at large for 22 days before being apprehended on Saturday.
