Chinese news agency, People’s Daily Online writes that some social media users claiming to be his former pupils said that the teacher had sexually assaulted a female student.
The parents of the girl then beat and stripped the man before the video was captured in Wei County, northern China’s Hebei province.
The footage shows the man seated on the ground naked; as onlookers take out their phones and film him, while some others just crowd around to look.
The man whose surname was later found put to be Li, has been confirmed as a member of staff at Weixian Number 1 Middle School, where he has been teaching for a number of years.
They said that “student evaluation of Li’s classes were good.”
The local Public Security Bureau issued a notification on August 9 confirming that they found a naked man suspected of crimes on the north outer ring road. It was said that the incident indeed took place, and is now being looked into.
The man was injured and so police took him to hospital.
A similar occurrence took place earlier in March of this year, as it was reported that a teacher tried to force himself on a female student in Lingshan County, China’s Guangxi autonomous region.
