Alleged rapist tasered by police after Gold Coast attack

A WOMAN was struck in the back of the head and then raped after a man allegedly waited for her at the Gold Coast home on Sunday afternoon.

Police have charged a man after the alleged sexual assault in Ashmore.

It will be alleged that sometime around 5pm a man unlawfully entered the Gold Coast residence.

When the 29-year-old female resident entered the dwelling it is alleged the man attacked her in what has been described as a random incident.

Police allege that the man then left the residence in the woman's vehicle with some of her property.

The woman sought refuge with a neighbour and called police.

Police located the man sometime later and will allege that when they attempted to detain the man he failed to comply with police direction at which time a taser was deployed.

The man was arrested without further incident.

A 27-year-old Surfers Paradise man has been charged with burglary, assault with intent to rape, rape, deprivation of liberty, armed robbery, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, serious assault police and wilful damage.

He is due to face a hearing later today.
