(Scroll down for video) A man wanted to go to jail in order to get free meals so he grabbed a woman and held her at knifepoint.

Peng Ni, 28, of China, grabbed the woman and waited for people to call the police to arrest him.

Ni was at a train station in Shanghai, when he grabbed the woman and placed his hand around her. He then pulled out a 12 inch knife and held it close to the woman.

Feng Lin, 51, who witnessed the incident, tackled Ni to the ground and held him down until officers arrived.

Ni claimed that he hadn’t eaten in two days and he wanted to go to prison to get free meals.

The incident took place around 9:00 p.m., at the Shanghai South Railway Station. The woman was unharmed.

Hopefully, the prison food was worth it as he will be eating it for quite some time.
