Police in Ho Chi Minh City have arrested two suspects who caused a woman to fall and lose consciousness during an attempt to snatch her handbag last weekend.

Officers under the municipal Department of Public Security, in coordination with the police unit in Tan Binh District, captured Phan Minh L., 16, and Ngo Hoang Anh, 18, on Tuesday.

Preliminary information showed that the incident took place in Tan Binh District at around 9:20 pm on January 15.

A man and a woman were standing next to an automobile parked along the street when two men on a motorbike approached and attempted to snatch the woman’s handbag.

Although they were unable to take the bag, the strong pull caused her to hit her head on the ground and go unconscious.

Ngo Hoang Anh is held at the police station in Ho Chi Minh City in this photo supplied by officers.
