A man, said to have involved in a hit-and-run accident, held his daughter at knifepoint in a standoff with police in China.

Zhang Gang was fetching his wife and three-year-old daughter on an outing when his car collided with another vehicle in Yongren county of Yunnan province last week.

He sped off. Police, acting on a report lodged by another driver, launched a search for Zhang Gang's car and spotted the vehicle near a market.

They managed to block Zhang Gang and forced him to pull over.

Just as the cops were approaching him, Zhang Gang took out a knife and threatened to harm his wife and daughter.

He demanded the police to step back while waving the knife in his hand as he talked.

Unintentionally, he injured the wife in the neck. He released her later but still held the girl hostage.

Again, he scratched the girl's leg with the knife, causing her to cry loudly. On seeing this, Zhang Gang stabbed himself in the thigh.

Even after two hours, Zhang Gang showed no signs of surrendering despite persuasion from his mother and other family members.

However, during one crucial moment when police noticed that Zhang Gang was not paying attention to the surrounding area, they grabbed him from behind.

Police overpowered him, snatched away his knife and rescued the girl.

His wife and daughter suffered minor injuries.
