A security guard at a house in Thu Duc City, Ho Chi Minh City accused the French director of FV Hospital of assault.

Police in Thao Dien Ward, Thu Duc City confirmed on Monday they received the report from Vu Viet Hung, 57, who works as a private security guard at a house in Thao Dien.

Hung accused Jean-Marcel Guillon, a French national and CEO of FV Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, of assaulting him.

The Thao Dien police unit summoned Guillon for a working session but he had not showed up as of Monday afternoon.

“Guillon said that he would be accompanied by a lawyer and representative of the French Consulate General," a police officer of Thao Dien Ward said.

According to the procedure, after Guillon arrives at the police station, officers will invite relevant parties for statements before transferring the case to the Thu Duc City police unit.

According to Hung’s report, he was guarding at the gate of a house on Nguyen Van Huong Street at around 11:35 pm on December 2.

A car later arrived, before two foreign men got out of the vehicle and said they were looking for their friend at the residence.

Hung explained that this was a private house and that the men’s friend did not live in the house, but one of the men started yelling and insisted on entering the residence.

“He pressed his hand against my chest, pulled my shirt, and then slapped me on the back of my neck,” Hung recalled.

The foreign man only stopped when some neighbors intervened.

The owner of the house later got out and explained to the strangers that they were not allowed to enter his home.

The foreign man was still yelling when police officers arrived.

He and relevant individuals were requested to follow the officers to the police station, before they were sent home.

Guillon told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Monday that he was having dinner that day when a friend called him and said that the latter’s friend needed emergency treatment.

Guillon then headed to the address that his friend gave and thought that the house where Hung was guarding was the right place.

The CEO said he tried to explained but the security guard did not understand English, so he insisted on entering the residence.

After Guillon’s friend showed him the correct address, he was able to save his friend.

The Frenchman admitted that might have overreacted thinking that the security guard was preventing him from saving a dying friend.

Guillon apologized for having an impact on Hung’s body and possibly affecting his health, adding that he will take Hung to FV Hospital for monitoring and care if the latter agrees.

The FV CEO stated he will meet and apologize directly to the security guard.
