According to media reports, Risby-Jones has been charged with ill-treatment.
The ABC reported that Risby-Jones was released on Tuesday evening.
He could reportedly face up to five years in prison and a public flogging if convicted of the alleged attack in the town of Simeulue.
His victim, Edi Ron, sustained a large laceration to his leg that required dozens of stitches.
He told 7NEWS that Risby-Jones “went insane and was chasing people.”
He claimed he was hit “from behind” by the young man.
“If I hadn’t been saved by the people there, I would have been beaten in the ditch,” said Edi.
Risby-Jones told local media he felt “obsessed” during the incident and was “not myself”.
At the end of May it was announced that 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 said through an interpreter to Edi’s wife, ABC reported.
“Once again I am very sorry and I am very pleased that you have accepted my apology. Thank you very much.”
Risby-Jones is expected to return to Australia in the coming days.
