A police officer from Binh Duong Province, southern Vietnam has been suspended from work after he was caught on camera engaging in a physical confrontation with some residents over a conflict earlier this week.

The provincial Department of Public Security confirmed on Wednesday it had suspended Captain Tran Xuan Phuong, an officer under the police division for administrative management of social order (PC06), from his position for 30 days.

During the suspension, relevant agencies will clarify the case where Phuong reportedly had a scuffle with some residents in An Thanh Ward, Thuan An City.

On Tuesday, N.T., a resident of An Thanh Ward, posted on her Facebook account a video clip of a fight involving many people.

T. stated that the incident took place on An Thanh 14 Street in An Thanh Ward at around 4:00 pm on Monday.

According to the woman, she and her husband were visiting her mother that day.

After noticing two parked automobiles that were blocking the alley, the couple complained to the owners.

An argument broke out between both sides and escalated into a physical confrontation.

T. and her husband were eventually outnumbered and hit by the car owners and their friends.

T. said one of the car owners even dared her to call the police.

“Go ahead and call the police, I am a policeman,” T. quoted the man as saying.

After acknowledging the incident, a leader of PC06 has ordered verification of the case.
