The man had reportedly been sitting in his car when a would-be assassin threw the spear through the window.
The spear lodged in his body and he was rushed to hospital in Anhui Province, eastern China.
Cops said the red-tasselled spear – famously used by for centuries by warriors in imperial China – had measured six feet but was shortened for ease of transport.
But doctors were reportedly reluctant to remove the tip at first for fear of causing the victim to bleed to death.
Instead, they just shortened the spear further before transferring him to another hospital to have the tip removed, according to reports.
He is said to have arrived in East China’s Zhejiang Province for further treatment and is now thought to be in a stable condition following his surgery.
Huangshan cops have reportedly confirmed they are probing the assassination attempt.
But they refused to comment on whether any suspects had been identified so far. The victim himself has also not revealed further details about the attack.
