A man was arrested in Gaoxian county, Sichuan province, after he kidnapped his ex-girlfriend's younger brother in a failed attempt to win her back.

The farmer, from a mountainous village, met the woman in 2004 while they worked as migrant workers at a factory in Zhejiang province. They later lived together.

During the Spring Festival, Qing Mei dumped him and left. In order to win her back, he snatched her 14-year-old brother on Friday but the plan backfired.
