(VOV) - A 22-year-old female student clawed at and wildly beat a mobile policeman in the face, forcing him to fall to the ground in order for her boyfriend, who had violated traffic laws, to flee.
More than 3,100 killed in traffic accidents
The assault occurred at night (12:30 am on May 7) at the T-junction of Truong Dinh and Giai Phong Street in Hanoi’s Hoang Mai District.
At the time, local police found a couple driving a motorbike without helmets and transporting two ‘suspicious' black plastic bags, so the police signaled to stop them.
But, upon seeing the police officers, the man sped away, prompting the policemen to chase after him street by street. The violator was finally pulled up on Kim Dong Street.
When the police ordered the couple to show their papers, they refused to cooperate, accusing the officers of being ‘fake’ police. The couple even claimed later that they were beaten by them.
To cope with the recalcitrant violators, the policemen asked for assistance from 113 mobile police forces. Upon the 113 policemen’s arrival, the girl suddenly pushed Nguyen Thanh Sang, a police man who was keeping order at the scene, to the ground.

But it did not stop there. More ferociously, the girl tugged Sang’s T-shirt hard and punched him in the face. She verbally abused the police officers constantly. Taking advantage of the disorder, her boyfriend fled.
Sang was reported to be bleeding from the lower lip and gums and has been given medical care. He also suffered deep psychological wounds.
More than one hour later, the young man returned and the couple continued to insult the law enforcement staff.
The girl was later identified as Nguyen Thi Thanh Hien, 22, who is currently studying at Thang Long University while her boyfriend is Tran Duc Thanh, 25, a student at Mo (Open) University. They were taken to Hoang Mai district’s police station that night for further questioning.
