Suspect on kidnap and rape charges

A Dublin man has been charged with falsely imprisoning and raping a woman at a house in the north inner city.

The 40-year-old was arrested shortly after the alleged incident in the Dublin 7 area last week.

He has since been charged and brought before Dublin District Court.

The man, from north county Dublin, is charged with falsely imprisoning the woman and raping her.

He was initially remanded in custody for a week and has since appeared again in court.
