The Demosisto secretary-general was pushed into a private car on the street at 7.30am and escorted to the Wan Chai police headquarters, according to his party colleague Nathan Law.

Law said Wong was being held on three charges, and their lawyers are working on the case.

It is unclear what charges are involved, though the arrest comes hours after pro-independence leader Andy Chan was detained at the airport.

When contacted by HKFP, a police spokesperson said they are confirming details of the arrest.
