 Police officers in Baoding, North China's Hebei Province, arrested a man who beat his wife, shaved her head and published photos and a video of the incident online.

According to the police announcement on Wednesday, the police officers received the report at 2:00 am on Monday. 

The man, surnamed Feng, beat his wife surnamed Han and injured her due to family conflicts. Feng shaved Han's hair and took photos and videos, investigations showed.

The video, which shows a bald-headed woman admitting to cheating on her husband, has circulated online since Monday.

However, Han said she was forced to admit she had an affair, or she would be beaten, the Beijing Youth Daily reported on Thursday.

According to the media report, Han said Feng was suspicious of her because of the messages she exchanged with other men. Feng's suspicion was cemented when he saw a message she sent to another man saying "my husband came back, don't send messages to me" on WeChat. Feng said the man has business dealings with her.

"I'm not feeling well and I have a lot of injuries," Han said, noting that she did not want to disclose more details, the Beijing Youth Daily reported.

The police announcement said the case is under investigation.

 A Beijing-based lawyer surnamed Zhang, who specializes in dealing with civil cases involved of marital disputes, told the Global Times on Thursday that if Han is identified to have suffered from injuries, Feng can be investigated for criminal responsibility. If the case does not belong to a long-term abuse, then Feng would be suspected of intentional injury. Feng would be suspected of insulting others as he posted photos and videos online after Han's hair was shaved causing blood to come out on her head.
