Sydney man charged over dating app rapes

A man who allegedly sexually assaulted two women he met through an online dating app in Sydney’s inner west has been charged.

Police allege the 29-year-old assaulted the two women on separate occasions at a home in Glebe in 2019 after meeting them on the app.

He was charged with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

Superintendent Alf Sergi says dating applications can “provide opportunity for sexual predators” due to the anonymity of the internet.

“Consent is a primary factor in every sexual assault, whether it be in an established relationship, a person you connected with on social media, or a complete stranger,” Supt Sergi said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Not all people want to report incidents of sexual assault, but if you have been a victim or a witness to any form of sexual violence, we urge you to come forward as we cannot investigate what we are unaware of.”

The Glebe man was refused bail to appear at Central Local Court later on Tuesday.
