Camera footage captured a man threatening the owner and an employee of a phone shop in central Nghe An Province with a knife and a gun to take their belongings.

At around 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, a man clothed in black and wearing masks entered a phone shop in Dien Chau District. He initially sat on a chair and asking around for products, before pulling out what looked like a gun and pointed it at the shop owner.

"This is a robbery!" he shouted and demanded the owner give him the phone box in her hand.

The robber then pulled out a knife and threatened to stab the owner upon seeing her retaliating. When a nearby employee placed another phone box onto the table, the robber took it and forced the owner to open her bag to "see if there's anything inside." The robber then took some cash from the bag and forced the women inside a room at the shop.

He later locked the door and escaped on his motorbike.

Dozens of police officers are on the hunt for the suspect.
