This was what happened when a furious wife caught her husband with another woman – she dragged her into the street and cut her hair.
Dong Lien, 34, was suspicious when husband Nghia Lien, 35, was spending too much time away from home, telling her he was working long shifts.
She gathered together her three children, Hien, Dong, Vinh and her mother-in-law and followed them to his mistress’s house.
The family then found the two in bed in Vinh Phuc province, Vietnam, on September 3 at around 8am, after a night shift at a nearby factory where they had been working together.
Dung dragged her love rival into the street and with her three children pulled at the the woman’s clothes and cut her hair while the man’s elderly mother watched, apparently keen to see the woman punished.
The alleged victim, who police named only as Mrs K, later ran back into her house before police arrived.
The footage went viral in Vietnam sparking a public outrcy and a police investigation.
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.”
Police chief Nguyen Minh Thiet, head of public security in the Ba Hien Commune where the attack happened, said that police had started an investigation immediately after the incident.
He said: ”The incident happened at 8am on September 3 in the village of Trai Cau.
”Before the fight, Mr Nghia had relations outside of marriage with Mrs K. This relationship was discovered by his wife and repeatedly monitored.
”The husband’s wife with her mother and children monitored the couple and caught them sleeping in the room of Mrs K.”
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.
He added: ”Although this incident is serious, in my opinion this is just an action that has exploded from jealousy that has built up for a long time.
”The husband was working at a factory with the Mrs K who also has a husband and two children in another area.”
The local police have now handed a file on the incident to the Binh Xuyen district police station to investigate.
