The Gangnam Police Station in Seoul announced on Nov. 21 that it has charged the parents of the victim, Ms. A, in their 40s, with child abuse under the Child Welfare Act and her high school-aged brother with assault.
They allegedly assaulted Ms. A for about 20 minutes토토사이트, punching and kicking her near an apartment complex in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, at around 0:00 a.m. on March 15.
Police, who responded to a witness report on the same day, arrested the parents and their brother in a nearby apartment, and immediately evicted the father.
The police later issued a temporary restraining order against the rest of the family three days later on the 18th, based on closed-circuit television footage, preventing them from approaching or contacting the victim.
