Man charged over horrific attempted rape of young Qld woman

A man has been charged over a violent attack in Rebank Plains in 2006, during which a 20-year-old woman was dragged into bushes and assaulted.

Almost 11 years ago, on August 27, the young woman was walking along Kruger Parade when she was approached by an unknown man who dragged her into a nearby park.

The woman was then seriously assaulted before a member of the public ran to her aid and scared the attacker off.


Following a protracted and extensive investigation, police yesterday arrested and charged a 37-year-old Riverview man with attempted rape, deprivation of liberty and assault occasioning bodily harm.

He is due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court today.
