Police prosecute Bach Mai hospital assailant

Nguyen Tien Dung

HA NOI (VNS) — A 36-year-old man has been arrested and prosecuted for disturbing public order after assaulting doctors at the Ha Noi-based Bach Mai Hospital last Friday.

Nguyen Tien Dung from Hoang Mai district attacked the doctors in the hospital's A9 Emergency Department because he thought they had neglected his sick wife.

Dung hit medical staff and threw a chair at a seven-month pregnant nurse, making her faint on the spot.

He also called a gang of friends to the hospital to continue the violence, but they were intercepted by police.

Dung was found to have a history of drug addiction. — VNS
