A Queensland man accused of seriously injuring a local man during an alleged naked rampage in the religiously conservative Indonesian province of Aceh has reportedly been released.
Bodhi Mani Risby-Jones, 23, has been in custody since late April after he allegedly chased and struck people in the street, including a fisherman who needed stitches in his leg.

Risby-Jones faced a charge of maltreatment, according to media reports.
He reportedly faced up to five years in jail and a public lashing if convicted over the alleged attack in the town of Simeulue.
His victim, Edi Ron, suffered a large cut on his leg that required dozens of stitches.
He told 7NEWS that Risby-Jones “went berserk, chasing people”.
He claimed he was hit by the young man “from behind”.
“If I had not been saved by the people there, I would have been beaten in the ditch,” Edi said.
Risby-Jones told local media he felt “possessed” and “was not myself” during the incident.
In late May, it was revealed Risby-Jones had reached an agreement to pay his victim AU$25,000.
“I hope the money can be used to help you guys a lot,” Risby-Jones told Edi’s wife through an interpreter, the ABC reported.
“I am once again very sorry and I’m very happy that you accepted my apology. Thank you.”
Risby-Jones is expected to return to Australia in coming days.
