Hung Liu, a Chinese banker, aged 32, committed a very desperate gesture to escape his parent’s nagging. Sick and tired of always being asked when he will get married, the man decided to kidnap a woman off the streets to con his parents into thinking he had a wife.
Liu informed his victim that he intends to marry her, but the girl managed to untie his hands and immediately called her boyfriend. The police traced the call, saved the woman and then detained the kidnapper. “I am the only member of my family without a girlfriend or wife, and I’m tired of always being criticized by my relatives,” Liu told police.
