China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By CAO YIN in Bei­jing caoyin@chi­nadaily.com.cn

An on­line post in which a woman claimed she was as­saulted at a fourstar Bei­jing ho­tel while staff turned a blind eye has trig­gered pub­lic anger and calls for more pro­tec­tion of women.

Bei­jing po­lice said on Wed­nes­day that they are con­duct­ing a “thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion” into the case. The ho­tel has apol­o­gized and promised to tighten man­age­ment and im­prove ser­vice.

The woman, known only by her Sina Weibo ac­count name “wan­wan_2016”, re­lated her ac­count on­line on Tues­day night. She said that she was fol­lowed and at­tacked by a stranger in Yi­tel Ho­tel in Bei­jing’s Chaoyang dis­trict at about 11 pm on Sun­day, and that sev­eral passers-by and a ho­tel em­ployee did noth­ing.

The woman also posted video clips recorded by the ho­tel sur­veil­lance cam­era.
