The video was uploaded on Weibo, China's equivalent of microblogging website Twitter, by a woman going by the name "Wanwan_2016."

Owners of the hotel issued an apology over the incident, explaining that the man was trying to take the woman away but was stopped by a female customer and a hotel guard.

"The hotel staff tried to separate them after hearing the noise. The man then made a phone call and tried to take the woman away. The woman sat down on the ground and called the police. When the man tried to drag the woman towards the emergency exit, he was stopped by a female customer and a hotel guard," the statement said.

"We established a special team to investigate the case after learning of the suffering of Ms. 'Wanwan.' We also tried to contact her but failed to find her. We hope 'Wanwan' will contact us. We need her help to bring the attacker to justice," the statement said.

Police in China said it they are investigating the case.

Weibo user Winston asked people to stop being indifferent when men beat women.

"If people stop being indifferent and calling it as a 'domestic incident' when husbands/boyfriends beat, drag or abuse their wives/girlfriends in public, wouldn't there be fewer of these dangerous situations?"
