Brisbane Soldier Accused Of Raping 16YO Teen
A soldier has been arrested and charged with raping a teenage girl at barracks in Brisbane.
The man, aged in his 20s, was taken into custody on Wednesday after he reportedly assaulted the 16-year-old girl at the Enoggera Army Base barracks.
Queensland Police said the alleged incident occurred on January 14 and resulted in an investigation.
The Australian Defence Force confirmed the soldier was taken into custody in relation to a sexual assault allegation and released on bail.
"Defence is assisting Queensland Police Service with their inquiries," a spokesperson told AAP in a statement.
"As the matter is under investigation by the Queensland Police Service it would be inappropriate for Defence to comment."
The man was ordered to appear at Brisbane Magistrates court on February 26.
