A 31-year-old Christchurch man has been remanded in custody on charges of kidnapping, raping, and sexually violating a woman over the weekend.
Luke James Henry (pictured) was remanded without plea by Christchurch District Court Judge Gary MacAskill to appear by video-link from the prison on September 22.
Henry, who lives in the central city, faces 14 charges, alleging that he raped and sexually violated the woman, unlawfully detained her, assaulted her, and assaulted her with intent to injure her on Friday.
He is then charged with driving while his licence was suspended on Saturday, reckless driving on Hendersons Road, Hoon Hay, and failing to stop for a police car using its lights and siren.
Henry represented himself at today’s hearing.
