A man from Ninghai, Ningbo came up with a plot to scare away his daughter’s new husband. There was a slight hitch in his plan, however, when the wrong man turned up at the arranged meeting.
Yan, a man in his 50s, had a daughter and a son. Yan especially loved his daughter Yuan, and spoiled her in every possible way. However, there was one thing about his daughter than Yan could not stand— her boyfriend Zhou. Yan felt that Zhou was not good enough for his daughter. He tried to get her to break up with him many times, but she refused. Yan still never expected that his daughter would elope with her boyfriend.
Ten days later, Yan received a message from his daughter that she had no money and was living in poverty. Yan, not wanting his daughter to experience hardships, sent her money. This happened a number of times. Yan decided that he could not compromise anymore and came up with a plan to get rid of Zhou so that his daughter would come back home.
Yan messaged his niece Jingjing on WeChat and they came up with a plan. Jingjing messaged Zhou on WeChat asking him out to eat some late night food. Zhou decided, without telling her, send his friend Yu who was also single to try to set them up.
On July 3, Jingjing appeared at the agreement location and met up with a man. Yan had called a few friends and family members to all drive up together and ambush Zhou. They saw Jingjing walking with a man, but it wasn’t Zhou. Yan decided to confront Yu to intimidate him into making Zhou appear.
Yan and his gang started to threaten Yu. Yu called Zhou, but he sounded nervous and suspicious on the phone and Zhou immediately hung up. Yan’s posse started to call out Yu for not doing his best to lure Zhou over and started beating him up.
Yuan got news of what her father was doing and reported him to the police. Yu was rescued by police at 4 am the next morning, where he was being held by Yan and his gang. Yan and his accomplices were taken away by police. Yu suffered from minor injuries.
Yan was arrested for illegal detention. He was held in in criminal detention. On November 14, Yan was sentenced to eight months in prison by a Ninghai court. His nephew Xiao Yan, who helped him beat and detain Yu, was sentenced to six months in prison.

Actually the best thing about this story is that Zhou got what basically amounted to a booty call from his wife's cousin and decided not only to not go, but to use the opportunity to set up a friend. Sounds like a lot more of a decent guy than his father-in-law tried to make him out as.

At the start of the article I sort of had some sympathy for the father, he was looking out for his daughter in a simple minded kind of way. But when it turns out they didn't get the guy they wanted so decided to beat up his friend instead they just showed themselves to be stupid, bully thugs. Makes you wonder if there was more to the daughter eloping than was mentioned in the article. Might be she just wanted to get away from her insane family.
