A man has been arrested over the kidnap of his ex-girlfriend after he allegedly forced her into his home - and ordered her to do the ironing.
The 43-year-old Italian apparently dragged the woman out of a bar in the port city of Genoa in the north of the country and pushed her into his car, before taking her back to his house.
Once there, he threatened to hurt her before making her iron his clothes and do the washing up, police said.
Officers were called to the property by a friend of the woman who saw the scene unfold at the bar.
