SYDNEY - Chinese actor Gao Yunxiang was arrested after a woman accused him of sexual assault in Sydney on Monday (March 26), said Australian reports.

The 36-year-old woman alleged Gao and another 35-year-old man, Wang Jing, attacked her in a room in Shangri-La Hotel, reported the Daily Mail, citing a Daily Telegraph report.

The two men appeared in Sydney Central Local Court via video from prison on Wednesday, said the Mail. Their lawyer said they would plead not guilty and apply for bail at a later date.
