A Sydney man has been accused of raping a woman after meeting her on dating app Tinder.
Joshua Reni faced court on Thursday after being charged in relation to an alleged sexual assault in 2017.
The 29-year-old was arrested at Waverley Police Station on Wednesday evening and was charged with aggravated sexual assault, deprivation of liberty and breach of bail.
Police allege Reni assaulted a 25-year-old woman at a home in Woollahra in November 2017 after meeting her on Tinder.
“Sexual assault is a crime no matter whether there’s a dating app involved or you meet at the local hotel or however you meet,” Detective Chief Inspector Grant Watson said.
“Under no circumstances is sexual assault okay and that’s our message to anyone who feels they may be a victim to sexual violence that they come forward and report it to police so we can investigate it.”
Reni has denied the allegation.
He’s due to face court again next week.
