A construction worker held his girlfriend hostage on a Chinese rooftop with a meat cleaver for five hours after her parents reportedly refused to approve their marriage.
Hundreds of onlookers and armed police watched as the man stripped to his underwear and ordered his girlfriend to do the same so she would be shamed in front of their neighbours.
He announced he was going to kill her and claimed the 29-year-old regularly had affairs when he went to work, according to various local media reports.
At one point the man, identified as a 32-year-old named Lin, stripped completely naked.
He held his girlfriend by the throat and waved the meat cleaver in the air as trained negotiators tried to talk him down from the roof of the quiet residential block.
The man’s relatives were brought to the scene on Monday to try and talk him down but had little luck
Eventually police provided one and, still holding his terrified partner, the man put his jeans back on and climbed down from the roof into a city square.
Still topless, he was handcuffed in front of hundreds of stunned onlookers and led away.
