It was gathered that 34-year-old Dong Lien, who became suspicious after her 35-year-old husband, Nghia Lien started spending too much time away from home, reportedly stripped her love rival naked and chopped off her hair in a furious act of revenge, while being accompanied to the mistress’ house by her three children, Hien, Dong, Vinh and her mother-in-law.
The mistress was dragged into the street, while her three children tore off the woman’s clothes as they cut her hair while the man’s mother watched, after the pair fully-clothed were caught sleeping together on a bed in Vinh Phuc province, Vietnam, on September 3 at around 8am, after a night shift at a nearby factory.
Asia News Wire reports that the alleged victim, who police named only as Mrs K, later ran back into her house before police arrived.
Officers said they had arrested the five women in the video and had passed the case to a senior police force.
Witness Tuyen Quang said:
“No one interfered in the incident because the jealous people screamed so loud, no one knew what the wrong and they did not want to get involved.
“I just know that two people were sitting in the room, then the man’s wife and relatives pulled her out, then they just hit, cut her hair, stripped the girl and abused her.”
The police officer said the victim had asked police not to prosecute the alleged attackers but public outrage over the case meant that they would pursue it.
