A 21-year-old male nursing student from Kenya repeatedly raped, assaulted and threatened a woman in his care between July and November last year, a Brisbane court has heard.
The Kenyan national, who cannot be named, has been in Australia on a student visa for the past year.
He was taken into custody yesterday.
He was charged with more than 20 counts of rape while working as a carer at the woman's Albany Creek home, north of Brisbane, last year.
Queensland police prosecutor Sergeant Aydina Pugh told the Brisbane Magistrates Court the offences were "significant".
The court heard the complainant travelled to Kenya recently, where she confided in a friend about the attacks.
She later lodged a complaint with police.
Her alleged attacker was granted bail on the condition he surrendered his passport and did not make contact with the complainant.
The matter is due to be heard again next month.
