The man appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today, where he was refused bail charged with a string of offences including rape, sexual assault, unlawful stalking, observations or recordings in breach of privacy and supplying dangerous drugs.
It comes after a woman aged in her 20s was allegedly sexually assaulted by the man at his apartment last month.
“It will be alleged a woman aged in her early 20’s attended a Mary Street apartment in late July where she was sexually assaulted after being administered a stupefying drug,” Qld police said.
“Police will further allege that concerning video depicting other young women was located on one of the mobile phones.”
It’s understood the videos were recorded at different times, sparking fears there may be other victims.
Detectives are now appealing for anyone who may have any information to immediately contact police.
Forensic analysis of the mobile phones and recording devices is continuing.
