An Italian man may not have been able to afford a housekeeper, but rather than do his household chores himself, he allegedly turned to crime to get his dishes washed.

The 43-year-old was arrested for allegedly kidnapping his ex-girlfriend from a bar in Genoa and forcing her to iron his clothes and wash his dishes, Reuters reported.

The domestically-challenged suspect is accused of dragging the woman out of the bar, shoving her into a car and taking her to his house, where he threatened her with violence if she did not do the chores, Reuters reported.

Police were contacted by a friend of the kidnapped woman who was with her at the bar. The suspect, reportedly furious at his ex for breaking up with him, was charged with kidnapping.
