HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City criminal police have arrested eight people for allegedly attacking and robbing money and other belongings from passengers on buses they operated illegally from the city to Mekong Delta provinces.
Colonel Le Ngoc Phuong, head of the HCM City police's crime division, said the eight included drivers, their assistants and agents operating illegally from places near Mien Tay Coach Station in Binh Tan District to cities and provinces in the delta.
After collecting passengers along the route, they would threaten them and snatch their belongings before forcing them off the bus.
