A man will appear in a Bundaberg court on Monday charged with sexually assaulting a woman at a Childers backpackers hostel on Sunday morning.*

Detectives allege the man assaulted the woman the Churchill Street property about 12.30am while she was alone.

A police spokeswoman said the victim knew her attacker, but had no close links or association to him.

She said the man had not broken into the property but had not been willingly let inside. No further details were available.

The 22-year-old was charged with rape, sexual assault, deprivation of liberty, assault with intent to commit rape and entering a dwelling with intent to use or threaten violence.

Police have called for anyone with information about the attack to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
