Juvenile delinquents busted by military cops

Teen victims and suspects were the order of the day on Saturday in an incident near the Vietnamese Embassy.

Police said the 15- and 16-year-old victims were riding home after visiting a fruit drink stall, when two other local high-schoolers – 16 and 17 – drove up from behind and slashed at them with a “samurai sword”.

The two victims managed to raise a ruckus and drew the attention of nearby military police, who intervened and saved the day.

The attacked duo were treated for minor injuries.
