Alleged rapist accused of striking again while on bail
The alleged Mt Coot-tha rapist has been accused of striking again after being released from prison on bail, a court has heard.
The 38-year-old man from Murarrie in Brisbane's east, who cannot be named for legal reasons, allegedly sexually assaulted a 20-year-old Korean student in New Farm Park on Friday night.
He appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court today charged with one count each of "stupefy", assault to rape and sexual assault.

He was also charged for breaching his bail conditions.
Last year, the 38-year-old was accused of drugging and raping at least three Asian students near the Mt Coot-tha lookout.
He allegedly lured the young women, he met via online student forums, to the lookout after promising to teach them English.
The 38-year-old was initially denied bail by a magistrate in April, but was later freed from prison by the Supreme Court on December 21.
He was remanded in custody today and is due to face court again on Thursday.
COMMENT: The Supreme Court has a lot to answer for over this latest outrage.
