Eyewitnesses said a group of two young men and a girl were walking on Le Lai Street at 8am when they suddenly came under attack by another group of young men.
A member of the latter group stabbed one man with a knife, causing the victim to fall to the street.
The victim, later identified as Thach The Duc, was immediately rushed to the hospital.
Neither of his friends nor any of the passers-by dared to intervene to stop the attack as the man appeared too violent.
He even challenged them to call the police, saying that he was taking revenge for his younger brother, who was earlier stabbed by Duc, one witness said.
The police quickly arrived to arrest some of the men for investigation.
