A 28-year-old mistress was found lying in a bush, badly bruised after she was allegedly beaten up by the scorned wife of her lover. Passersby stopped to help the woman up after the brutal attack in eastern China’s Shandong Province on Wednesday, September 28.
Chinese media reports revealed that the battered mistress was left with a heavily swollen face and some missing teeth which were knocked out after she took a blow to the mouth. After the young woman was beaten to a pulp, she managed to drag herself to a corner where she was eventually spotted slumped up against a tree in low bushes in what appears to be a busy built-up area.
Another version of the story making the rounds on Chinese social media site, Weibo, claimed the woman was actually attacked by four men hired by the cheating man’s wife. The posts alleged she had been detained and beaten for several days.
The woman however, refused to reveal how she suffered the injuries, the public security bureau of the city of Anqui in Shandong Province said on its Facebook page.
Photos shared on Weibo showed the woman before and after the attack, revealing how horribly her face was transformed by the force of the blows. Chinese news service, Shen Weifang suggested the images of the woman before the attack were ripped from one of her social media accounts.
In a similar event, a 38-year-old mistress was ambushed by the angry wife of her lover and her friends on a busy street in the city of Puyang in eastern China’s Henan Province. The wife and her friends violently stripped and beat her up mercilessly while passersby watched.
The mistress, Lin Yao Li was punched and kicked in the groin and breasts as she writhed screaming in agony on the pavement.
Onlookers said, they didn’t intervene because it was an ‘argument of the heart’ – she didn’t deserve help because had slept with another woman’s husband. And the police never came to her rescue either.
