Bank robber duo arrested in HCMC


Two men have been arrested in Ho Chi Minh City two days after they made a failed attempt to rob a Sacombank branch in the city with a rubber bullet gun.

Thien said he planned the robbery as he needed money to pay off a debt.

He brought the gun and asked Xuong to come with to the bank on Pham The Hien Street, District 8 on Friday afternoon.

They both wore face masks, hats and pretended to be customers.

Thien quickly withdrew his gun once they were inside to force the bank staff to hand them money.

A respresentative of the bank said the duo were not able to get past security systems to access any asset and then left empty handed. Both escaped on their motorbike.
