Man, 19, accused of raping teen girl remanded in custody

A 19-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with the rape of a teenage girl at a town west of Toowoomba.

The man is accused of raping the 15-year-old at a party at the weekend in a country town on Sunday.

He was arrested by Child Protection Investigation Unit detectives on Monday when he appeared in court.

His existing bail on other, unrelated charges was revoked at that time and he was remanded in custody before his next appearance, to be by video link, in December.

The man, who had been on bail for assault occasioning bodily harm and drug charges, had earlier this month appeared in court charged with eight counts of breach of bail conditions.
