A YOUNG WOMAN complained on social media that a man assaulted her on Sunday night while she was staying at a Home Inn in Beijing. Video from the hotel's security cameras, which the woman filmed with her phone when shown it and then posted online, shows a male hotel employee asked the man to stop, but did not try to restrain him and it was a female guest who finally stopped the man. Zhang Zhouxiang, a writer with China Daily, comments:

Worse than the attack itself is that both the hotel and the local police have tried to pass the buck.

On Tuesday night, Home Inn said in a statement that they had been "wasting no time trying to contact the victim".
