(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after being accused of child abuse for beating her little son for not doing his homework, police in China said.

Despite the fact that the mother brutally beat her six-year-old son, police have decided not to pursue charges against her.

The incident began when a school teacher saw that Xiao Bing had bruises on his back while he was changing for gym class. The teacher reported the abuse to the authorities and took pictures of the wounds with his phone so he could show what he discovered.

When police questioned Bing, he told officers that his mother had hit him because he did not do his homework. Police said that Bing was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The mother was arrested for questioning, but was not charged with any crime. Police said that they let her walk after they gave her a warning.

Photos of Bing’s injured back were published online by the teacher because he was angry that the police did not punish the mother.
