On the morning of the incident, Lanxi officials sent more than 300 government personnel, led by uniformed public security officers, to surround a local house church where 30 Christians were gathering. Law enforcement officers forced their way into the private house to clear the scene.

If any church attendees resisted or took photos, the authorities would hit or kick them. Of the 11 injured Christians, some sustained fractures while others had their hair pulled out of their heads or were put in headlocks.
