A banker was arrested on charges of kidnapping after allegedly kidnapping a woman in order to show his parents that he has a girlfriend, police in China said.

Liaoning Police said that they have arrested 32-year-old Liu Hung, after being accused of hiding behind a tree in a park before kidnapping the woman.

During police questioning, Hung said that he was sick and tired of his parents, nagging him to get a girlfriend and start a family.

After years of torment, Hung finally decided to do something about it.

Instead of asking a friend to accompany him to his parents’ home and pretend to be his girlfriend, Hung plotted to kidnap a woman, marry her and take her to his parents.

Hung went to the park and hid behind a tree, waiting for a suitable woman to be his wife.

When Hung finally found someone that looked interesting, he tied her up and covered her mouth with duct tape to prevent her from screaming.

Hung took the 24-year-old woman to his home and told her that they would get married. While he was away, the woman was able to free her hands and call her boyfriend, who alerted the police.

The police traced the call and rescued the young woman before Hung returned to the home. When Hung arrived, the police arrested him.

The woman did not suffer any physical injuries.
