A starving man grabbed a woman on the Shanghai Metro yesterday and put a knife to her throat - because he was trying to get into prison. The incident took place around 21:00 on Monday April 28 at Shanghai South Railway Station.
The man apparently hadn’t eaten for two days and did this with the express purpose of getting arrested so he could get his hands on some delicious prison food.
The woman was distressed, but ultimately unharmed, as the man let her go as soon as he was confident that he had created enough of a scene for someone to call the police.
This will no doubt raise questions about how he was able to achieve this given most major cities have been making a lot of noise about increased security measures and have been on terror alert since the Kunming attacks last month.
Let’s hope that the prison food was worth it, as he may be eating it for a very long time to come.
