A man was brutally attacked by a man wielding a cleaver in the Loc Tho Phuc Tho district (Phúc Lộc Thọ) of Hanoi, in Vietnam at approximately 8 am on October 9th, 2016. CCTV captures what appears to be an ordinary mundane morning of people going about their business at the market when suddenly we see people run while others watch an obvious commotion out of sight. Soon, the men involved in the scuffle appear on camera, one being bloodied, running from a man with a cleaver-like weapon who continues to hack at the man eve after her has collapsed. A passerby attempts to help the fallen man but is prevented from doing so until the attacker leaves.
It is reported that the incident was sparked over a betting/gambling debt. The victim later died from his injuries.
