A convicted murderer broke out of a prison in the north-central Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa for the third time on Tuesday.

Trieu Quan Su, 31, who was convicted of murder, robbery, desertion, and prison break, escaped from the prison of the criminal investigation department under the Ministry of National Defense in Thanh Long Commune, Thach Thanh District, Thanh Hoa Province at around 5:00 pm on Tuesday, according to police in Thanh Hoa City, the provincial capital.

Police said Su is a highly dangerous criminal, advising local residents to promptly contact police officers or military units or dial 0983736704 if they spot him.

The criminal is 1.6 meters tall, has a straight nose bridge, a dark complexion, and a mole one centimeter from the end of the left brow, according to police description.

The man was found guilty of murder, robbery, and desertion in 2013 after leaving his military unit five times and murdering a 49-year-old coffee shop owner in Hanoi in August 2012.

This is the third time the inmate has broken out of prison.

He escaped from jail for the first time in 2014 before being found guilty of intentionally causing injury and stealing property in 2016.

Su escaped from prison for the second time in 2020 and again stole property.
