In a bizarre footage released which shows nearly a naked woman being brutally beaten by the wife of her lover as they caught her in the house.
The furious wife from Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in south China is said to have suspected her husband of having an affair for a while but was even more shocked and angered when her husband brought his lover home.
She called up her friends and relatives, and then followed by the large posse burst into the bedroom of their home and found the unfaithful man and his mistress in bed together.

The video clip has been circulated online which shows both of them being yanked out from under the duvet and then separated.
One of his wife’s relatives pins him against the cupboards and threatens to beat him up if he moves, while the mistress is dragged onto the floor wearing only her knickers. The mistress has been repeatedly beaten by the wife and another one of her friends, leaving her red and bruising.
The young woman does not fight back and curls up into a ball while trying to defend herself. She is still crying as the shocking attack ends, the video shows.

It is unclear what happened after the events in the video but the man’s mistress is likely to have been sent home with a warning.
Adultery is not a crime in China. Wronged husbands and wives therefore often feel the need to take matters into their own hands, which can sometimes lead to assault charges.
