You thought that it could only happen in the movies, but James Wakefield had a plan to win back his girlfriend's love: have a friend kidnap her, so he could be a hero and rescue her!
And as if that's not strange enough, there's the bit about a Dalek voice-changer helmet:
[James Wakefield] offered his friend Aaron Rawson £20,000 to take the woman to a wood and threaten to attack her, while wearing the helmet to disguise his voice.
Wakefield, 28, would then turn up and "save" her in the hope of winning her back, the court heard.
Rawson, 21, claimed he thought Wakefield was joking until he turned up with the £40 helmet he had bought at Woolworths, along with night vision goggles, handcuffs, an air pistol, a balaclava, a boiler suit and a knife block.
