Authorities in Ho Chi Minh City have lauded a lecturer of the People’s Security University for using his car to help catch a street robber.

The People’s Committee of Phu Nhuan District in the southern city awarded on Monday a certificate of honor to Lieutenant Colonel Le Hoang Viet Lam, lecturer of the People’s Security University.

Lam witnessed a robber riding a motorbike snatch the mobile phone of D.H.B., who was walking on the sidewalk of Ho Van Hue Street at around 5:00 pm on Sunday.

As the snatcher raced away, Lam used his car to block the robber’s way, making him fall on the road.

Nguyen Van Duc Lam, a passer-by, joined Viet Lam to chase after and catch the robber.
