The video included one surveillance clip showing her ex, 44-year-old artist Chen Hong, pulling Yuyamika out of an elevator by her legs. She goes on to describe how Chen had slapped her in the face, slammed her head against a wall, and kicked her on the ground during their year-long relationship.

An update came on Thursday with Chen receiving 20-days administrative detention and a restraining order that bars him from going near Yuyamika. In addition to assaulting his girlfriend, police said that Chen threatened others on WeChat.
It’s unclear at this time if he will face further punishment.
