A hotel worker has been charged with the rape of a reality TV star.
Police said the woman was attacked in London during the early hours.
Hotel porter John Soby, 24, is alleged to have assaulted the woman as she slept. She awoke to find a man on top of her having sex during the incident last month.
Indian-born Soby was arrested hours later by detectives working for Scotland Yard’s Sapphire sex crimes command.
He was taken to a police station where he had his DNA, mugshot and fingerprints taken before being interviewed at length. Specially-trained detectives took a video statement from the woman at a “rape suite” at a Central London police station.
Foreign student Soby, who lives in the capital, works part-time at a hotel as an agency porter. He was charged with rape and appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Saturday.
He was remanded in custody to appear at Southwark Crown Court on January 15.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “John Soby appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on Saturday charged with the rape of a woman.”
