A Wausau man whose car was nearly stolen by four Asian gangsters from St. Paul wants justice for the would be thieves. 19-year-old Tou Lo saw the group trying to steal his car, shooed them away and chased after them in the vehicle.
Lo pursued the suspects in a car chase that ended in a roadside fight. Lo says one gang member hit him with an ice scarper and another had a tire iron. He pulled out a sword to scare them off. The suspects drove off but made a U-turn and sped at Lo at nearly 70 miles an hour. Lo jumped back into his vehicle to avoid getting run over.
After the group was taken into custody, a judge put 17-year-olds Richi Vue and Xoua Xiong in jail on a $25,000 cash bond. The two are charged with stealing a vehicle from St. Paul and trying to steal Lo's car. Two others in the car with them are being held in juvenile detention.
