According to the ABC the 21-year-old attacker was distributing "derogatory and defamatory remarks about the incumbents." Campbell Ray, a 29-year-old student party member approached the man which then led to Ray being assaulted.

Speaking to The Brisbane Times, UQ Union president Joshua Millroy stated that "there was a person getting around campus who was abusing campaigners...That person was then confronted about his behaviour and he proceeded to king hit and then continued to attack a campaigner who was involved in the elections."

Following the coward punch onlookers jumped in to stop the assault, which lead to the attacker spitting on one of them.

The 21-year-old Camp Hill man has been charged with assault and will appear at the Brisbane Magistrates Court on October 28.
