Bulker Crewman Stabbed by Robbers in Godau Port, Vietnam

Two robbers armed with knives boarded an anchored bulk carrier in Godau Port, Vietnam, on January 31, IMB Piracy Reporting Centre informed.

Once onboard, the robbers took one of the crew members, the bosun, hostage, threatened and injured him with a knife.

As informed, the injured officer was then tied up as the robbers ransacked the ship.

However, the bosun managed to free himself and inform the ship’s master of the incident, who then raised the alarm and the crew mustered.

A search was carried out and ship’s stores were reported missing, but the robbers were not caught.

IMB said that the incident was reported to local port authorities.

A team of investigators was sent to the scene to collect evidence and an investigation into the case is said to be underway.

The bosun was sent ashore for medical treatment. Details about the type of the injuries he sustained were not disclosed.
