Police in Dak Nong Province, located in Vietnam’s Central Highlands region, have arrested two local teenagers for throwing stones at moving sleeper buses on National Highway 14, a local police official confirmed on Sunday.

The teenagers were identified as Pham Van T. and Ly Thien H., both aged 18 and residing in Dak Song District.

Police officers are also hunting for others involved in this case to tackle them as per the prevailing regulations.

At around 4:30 am on Saturday, police in Dak Song were notified that a group of people threw stones at moving buses on the highway section passing through the district’s Nam Binh Commune.

Police officers then launched an investigation and searched for this group of vandals.

Three hours later, they managed to apprehend Pham Van T. and Ly Thien H., who committed the act of vandalism on their way home after joining a karaoke and drinking party.

The duo confessed that they and some others, who are on the run, picked up stones from the roadside to throw at moving buses on the highway, for their headlights dazzled them.

They immediately fled the scene, but then continued to throw stones at other sleeper buses on their way. 

Consequently, the windows of six sleeper buses were broken.

Police strongly condemned this act of vandalism, saying that it would not only damage the vehicles, but could also harm drivers and local residents.

It could lead to other serial and tragic traffic accidents, police added.
