A man was taken into custody on Monday night after he grabbed a woman at the Shanghai South Railway Station metro stop and held her at knife-point until they were split up by a passerby. The man reportedly “hadn’t eaten for two days and wanted to be imprisoned.” Well, that’s certainly one way to get there.
A Weibo-user named Jiazi Xinjia is said to have seen the event go down, and posted, “The young woman was crying and her eyes were red.” After a few tense moments, however, the hostage situation ended anticlimactically and the unnamed assailant is probably gorging himself on prison food at this very moment.
In the future, we recommend he simply retweet a bunch of rumors to get to prison instead of, you know, risk getting killed by police.
