The variation of AC dielectric constant in the function of the DC magnetic fields was found in low oxygen vacant LuFe2O4 single crystal in which the electric polarization arise from the polar charge ordering. These magneto-electric coupling should be explained by a novel mechanism where the boundary motion of the polar charge ordered domain is affected by the magnetic (spin) domain boundary motion.
