A man and a woman have been arrested after they had committed a robbery before using the stolen property to buy a pair of wedding rings and narcotics in Ho Chi Minh City earlier this week.

Police in Binh Chanh District confirmed on Saturday they had apprehended Tran Hoang Tuan and Ngo Thi Ngoc Nguyen, both 23, for robbery.

Preliminary information showed that Tuan carried Nguyen on a motorbike in Binh Chanh District at around 4:00 am on January 10 to hunt for prey.

They spotted a group of three women who were walking on a street and attempted to snatch one of the victims’ handbag.

As their first attempt did not succeed, the couple decided to turn around and stage an incident.

Nguyen attacked the woman with the handbag, claiming that the victim had seduced her husband.

As the victim’s friends intervened, Tuan also joined the fight.

The robbers managed to snatch the victim’s necklace and handbag, which contained an iPhone and VND2.5 million (US$110), during the quarrel before running away on their motorbike.

They sold the necklace later the same day for VND6 million ($264) and spent VND4 million ($176) on a pair of wedding rings.

They also sold the iPhone for VND2 million ($88).

Tuan and Nguyen then hid their motorbike at an apartment building in southern Binh Duong Province and spent the rest of the money on narcotics.

After the victims reported the case, police officers were able to identify the suspects before capturing them on Friday.
