Jealousy has led a Chinese wife to cut off another woman's breasts. Xiao Lin, a 27-year-old woman, was at home watching television in her home in Heshan, China when she heard a knock at her door. As she got up to answer the door, someone had kicked it hard that she fell to the floor. The blow had left her unconscious.

According to reports, the unconscious woman was tied up and stripped naked after a bag was placed to cover her head. The woman's husband, Xiao Luo, told local papers of the encounter.
Xiao said his wife had thought she was going to be a victim of sexual assault but she was wrong. Her attacker had "cut off" her breasts using scissors.
When the attacker removed the bag over Lin's head, she immediately identified the perpetrator as Meng Tsao, her former co-worker in a factory where she previously worked.
Meng admitted she was guilty to Chinese authorities and claimed she only cut off Lin's breasts because she believed the woman was having an affair with her husband. She thought her husband was cheating on her and wanted to file for divorce to get rid of her. She had wrongly accused the woman of "stealing" her husband. Meng's husband, Meng Pan, had once told her he had a "crush" on Xiao but she rejected his affections.
Meng's husband told her he found Xiao "attractive." When her husband filed for divorce, she thought the other woman was his reason for giving up on their marriage.
Police arrested and charged Meng while the woman's breasts who were cut off remained in the hospital for treatment. Meng's husband denied having an affair with Xiao after police questioned him.
According to doctors who have examined Xiao, it was impossible to reattach her breasts since they were completely cut off. Breasts are made up of tissues with sensitive nerve endings. Cutting off a woman's breasts especially with only scissors and without anaesthesia can be extremely painful on the victim.
