AAP logoAAP 9/01/2017

A man accused of raping a woman in a Brisbane alleyway nearly six years ago is set to apply for bail.

The 32-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in northern NSW in December, along with his 24-year-old co-accused in Queensland.

He is due to make a bail application in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Both men are facing three counts of rape, two of sexual assault and one of deprivation of liberty over the April 2011 attack.

Police allege the 20-year-old victim was walking along Manning Street, South Brisbane, to catch a bus late one night when she was set upon, forced into an alleyway and aggressively raped.
