VUNG TAU CITY, Vietnam, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A worker at a Vietnamese cafe said the owner forced her to get centipede tattoos on her face and bosom for a suspected affair with the owner's husband.

Police in Vung Tau City were investigating Nguyen Thuy Ngoc's claim that Nguyen Thi Anh, who owns the Mo Neo cafe, shaved Ngoc's head and forced her to get a centipede tattooed on her face and two others on her chest because of a suspected affair between Ngoc and Ahn's husband, Pham The Phong, Tuoi Tre News reported.

Ngoc, 20, said Anh, 33, had asked her why she had an affair with her husband and beat her Nov. 26 and Nov. 27 at the cafe.

Ngoc said she came to Vung Tau in April 2008 to work for Anh at her cellphone shop but Anh later opened a cafe and forced her to work there.

Ngoc returned to her home in Nghe An province's Nghi Loc district Nov. 28 and told her mother, Tran Thi Hoa, of her treatment. The mother reported it to police in Nghe An and Vung Tau.

Vung Tau police questioned Anh and Phong and the couple told police they had hired Ngoc at the cafe but she quit over conflicts between her and Anh.
