Police in Ho Chi Minh City are tracking down two young men who snatched a wallet and a cellphone from a woman on a street this week.
Phu Nhuan District police officers on Saturday said they were coordinating with units of the municipal police to search for two suspects in a robbery that happened a day earlier on Huynh Van Banh Street.
According to initial reports, T.V., living in District 7, and a boy were walking across the street at 3:45 pm on Friday when two young men on a scooter without a license plate approached them from behind.
When the scooter got close to the woman, the man riding pillion quickly grasped a wallet and a mobile phone from the left hand of the woman and the scooter driver sped up to escape.
The woman shouted for help and ran after the robbers but she failed to catch them.
All the details of the robbery were recorded by a security surveillance camera system in the area.
Local police have looked into the relevant data from the system to hunt for the snatchers.
