Australian police have arrested a man connected with an assault on protestors against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

The 30-year-old man, who was arrested by authorities on Dec. 5 at Sydney Airport, has been extradited from New South Wales and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today on Dec. 7, according to a statement by Australian Federal Police.

He was charged over an incident in Acton in October, which occurred at the same time a group of Falun Gong advocates were handing out flyers to raise awareness of the persecution faced by the group in China at the Floriade flower festival in Canberra, Australia’s capital.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual group consisting of meditative exercises and moral teachings centred on truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance.

Nancy Dong, a female Canberran resident and Falun Gong practitioner, had returned to her car and found two Chinese men graffitiing the Chinese signage on her car that read, “End the evil CCP.”

Dong began to record the two men with her phone before one of them snatched it and proceeded to assault her.

“This young man then grabbed my neck with his elbow, lifted me up, and threw me to the ground. He then started to kick and punch me. I almost fainted from the fall, and I lost the ability to resist his attack,” Dong alleged.

The altercation led to bruises on Dong’s arms and injuries to her lower body that forced her to require the use of crutches to be mobile.

While the two men spray-painted Dong’s car, a woman is also alleged to have played lookout for them. The police have released pictures of the three and sought information about them.

The man was returned to the ACT on Dec. 6 and will face charges of robbery, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, destroying/damaging property, and defacing private premises. The other two suspects remain at large.

The incident came amid a wave of withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated resignations that has seen over 400 million Chinese people quit the CCP and an “End CCP” movement for people outside mainland China to show their support. Many “End CCP” car rallies have been held in cities around the world to mark this milestone.

Both movements were started by practitioners of Falun Gong, a Buddhist meditation practice that has been persecuted in mainland China since 1999.

The threat of the communist regime has also attracted international attention after it was revealed that Beijing set up “at least 54 police-run ‘overseas police service centres’ across five continents,” including one in Sydney.

Despite being a victim herself, Dong said she felt sorry for those who attacked her.

“These young people are about the same age as my child[ren],” she previously told The Epoch Times. “I feel so bad to see that the CCP has educated young people to be so vicious and brutal.”

The matter remains under investigation by police. Anyone who has any information that can assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or on the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 7234672. Information can be provided anonymously.
