HA NOI — A 21-year-old Vietnamese student was brutally assaulted by an armed group in Melbourne, Australia, on June 27 while he was on the way home from his workplace, according to Vietnam News Agency correspondent from Sydney.
Duong Minh Tuan, a student at Swinburne University of Technology, was hospitalised with serious injuries to the head and face - and a broken jaw that needed surgery.
The correspondent said three suspects were arrested for questioning. The Vietnamese Embassy in Australia contacted the Ministry of Education and Training and Australian Police agencies to handle the case.
