Man caught for trying to kill child, hiding him in freezer

POLICE have arrested a 25-year-old man for the attempted murder of a three-year-old boy after beating him unconscious and hiding him in a freezer.

At noon on Aug 13, the boy walked from his house to the bubble tea shop of Nguyen Truong Giang next door in Ha Nam province. There were no guests at the time.The boy drank a cup of milk tea from the table. Giang told the boy to behave so he could do the cleaning.

When the suspect went to the counter to clean up, the boy followed, took some cookies and sat on a camp bed eating. The boy kept asking Giang to play with him.

An annoyed Giang took a metal pestle and hit the back of the boy’s head. The boy fell off the bed, hit his head on the floor and cried out.Giang then covered the boy’s mouth, strangled him and banged his head on the floor until he was unconscious. He then stuffed the boy in a cardboard box, put him in a freezer and left on his motorbike.

Giang later got a phone call from the boy’s grandfather asking about his grandson. Giang said the boy had come, but he hadn’t see him since.The boy’s family later broke into the shop, found the boy in the freezer and rushed him to the hospital. Police caught Giang trying to flee to Hanoi. — Vietnam News/ANN
