Alleged Rapist Turned In By Father

The father of an alleged rapist phoned police to hand in his son following news reports of a vicious sex attack in an inner city park.
The 24-year-old -- who cannot be named -- appeared in custody in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court yesterday charged with two counts of rape, assault with intent to rape and deprivation of liberty.
His mother and father were also in court, while his father told the court his family would support him if he was released on bail.
All the offences were allegedly perpetrated against a 30-year-old woman in the Paddington skate park as she walked home from the Caxton St nightclub precinct.
Defence lawyer Howard Posner applied for bail, saying his client had voluntarily surrendered himself to police after his father phoned them on Monday.
After seeing publicity about the attack, he said the 24-year-old spoke to his father and said: "It's me".
The man -- who lives at home with his parents -- stayed there and gave an interview to police after they arrived.
"The family sat together waiting," Mr Posner said.
But prosecutor Sgt Henri Rantala opposed the man's release for what he said was a "heinous" crime that would see him serve jail time.
Sgt Rantala said the man had admitted being with the woman and punching her on the head after she refused to have sex with him.
Magistrate Jacqui Payne agreed to grant the man bail on conditions including that his family provide a $1000 surety and that he report to police twice a week.
He must also live with his parents and not leave home without them between 9pm and 6am.
The man was ordered not to have any contact with his alleged victim and surrendered his passport yesterday.
He will reappear before the court next month.
