A literature teacher from Hai Duong Province in northern Vietnam has been arrested for groping two ninth graders, according to local police.

Police in Chi Linh City under Hai Duong Province confirmed on Sunday they had apprehended Nguyen Van Hong, 47, a literature teacher at Le Loi High School, on charges of molesting under-16-year-old individuals.

On July 11, the People’s Committee in Chi Linh City received a report from a family who stated that their daughter, who studies in ninth grade at Le Loi High School, had been groped by Hong.

Hong repeatedly touched the student’s chest and forced her to kiss him, causing the student to suffer psychological problems that led to her cutting her arms and legs with a razor, the family said.

The city’s police unit and People’s Procuracy were then tasked with investigating the case and collecting statements from relevant individuals.

During a working session with local authorities, Hong admitted that the accusations made by the student’s family were true.

In a report sent to the school board, Hong confessed to touching the chests of two ninth graders on separate occasions from October 2021 to May 2022, explaining that the actions were part of his habits.

Believing that this is a serious violation, the school board decided to suspend the teacher and report the case to police offficers, leading to his arrest.
