Two blasts rocked a station in Tan Binh District on Wednesday, injuring an officer and damaging some motorbikes.

Police in Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Binh District said on Thursday they were following up on camera footage of two men who passed a police station just before it was rocked by a couple of explosions on Wednesday.

The incident took place in the afternoon at the Ward 12 police station on Truong Chinh Street.

One female officer was injured in the blasts and several motorbikes in the building were damaged.

Camera footage shows a man riding pillion on a motorbike hopping off as it passed the police station, and apparently throwing an unidentified object into the station before getting back on the bike and escaping.

The two men on the bike were wearing masks, jeans and sneakers.

Soon after they passed the station, there were two blasts.

Ho Chi Minh City police spokesman Nguyen Sy Quang said the police are still investigating the explosions.
