Police in Yokohama have arrested an unemployed 24-year-old Chinese woman on suspicion of abusing her 18-month-old daughter in June.

According to police, Guo Yian beat the child about the head until she lost consciousness at their apartment in Isogo Ward at around 11:30 p.m. on June 19, Fuji TV reported.

Guo lives with her 28-year-old Chinese husband, 4-year-old son and daughter. The husband was out at the time of of the alleged abuse. When he returned home and noticed his daughter unconscious, his wife said she had fallen off a bench.

The couple then took the girl to a hospital. Doctors diagnosed her as suffering from a blood clot on the brain. They also noticed bruises on her body and notified police about a possible case of child abuse.

Guo went to China in July after becoming ill and was arrested this week upon her return to Japan. Police said she has admitted hitting her daughter’s legs and hands to discipline her but denied hitting her on the head, police said.

The baby remains in a coma in hospital.
