Woman Tortured, Raped In 14-Hour Ordeal, Police Say

A Queensland woman was held against her will overnight and repeatedly assaulted and tortured, police say.

Officers attended a Sunshine Coast address in Maroochydore at about 10.30am on Thursday, after an employee of the household contacted police to say a woman was being held against her will.

Police will allege the woman was held at the address between 8pm on Wednesday night and 10am Thursday, where she was repeatedly assaulted and tortured.

A 31-year-old man has been charged with deprivation of liberty, rape, torture, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm.

He is scheduled to appear in court later on Friday.
