PHU YEN (VNS) — Two traffic violators who attacked traffic policemen in Phu Hoa District of Phu Yen Province have been arrested, Colonel Chau Van That, head of the district police team, has said.
At around 3pm on Wednesday, two traffic policemen in the central coastal district saw two young men riding a motorbike without the mandatory rear-view mirror. In addition, the policemen suspected the driver of drink-driving.
They asked the two men to stop and let them check the level of alcohol in the driver's blood. However, the two ignored the order and instead attacked the policemen with their helmets. The policemen could only free themselves after local people came to their rescue, but they suffered serious injuries. They are receiving medical treatment at the Phu Yen General Hospital.
Colonel That named the two men who attacked the police as Nguyen Kim Truc, 25, and Nguyen Van Vu, 33, both from Mo Lam Nam Village in Hoa Quang Nam Commune of Phu Hoa District. — VNS
