The grandmother, who was identified as Chou, was taken into a vehicle in New Taipei City, and was missing for 4 hours.

The kidnapper called the woman’s family and demanded NT $7 million (about $230,000) for her release.

However, his plans were thwarted when the woman kept nagging and annoying the kidnapper.

Chou kept complaining about her illnesses and pains. The suspect stopped at a drugstore to buy pain medicine for her.

“This is not the way to make money,” Chou berated her kidnapper. “You are young and you still have a long way to go, but I do not have much time left,” she added.

When the kidnapper demanded money from Chou’s family they tried to buy time so that police can track the suspect down. They warned the kidnapper to take good care of the elderly woman.
