Dozens of people brandished knives and metal bars to wreak havoc at a HCMC restaurant and threaten customers on Monday.

People were eating and watching football Monday night at a restaurant in District 7 when dozens of young people arrived on motorbikes and a car. The group, who wore masks and brandished multiple weapons, rushed into the restaurant, smashed things and scared off customers and employees.

The entire ordeal, which lasted around 3 minutes, was captured by security cameras.

Nguyen Thuy Hoa, 40, the restaurant's owner, said there was a group of people who came to the place two months prior for food, before damaging the place and demanding to see the owner, saying the owner must "contact them for business to run smoothly."

"I suspect they made a mess of things as a form of blackmail to get protection money," she said.

An investigation is ongoing.
