A witness said that he saw a young couple walking on Ton Duc Thang Street in central District 1 when the man suddenly grabbed her by the neck.
After a brief struggle, he pulled a knife and stabbed the girl before stabbing himself. The girl is in a critical condition in a local hospital, while the boy, who suffered less serious injuries, is in police custody.
“They are so young. I saw the girl crying a lot before the incident,” a street vendor said. “Things happened so fast that nobody could do anything.”
