It is alleged in court documents that the woman saw the man smoking ice and she passed out soon after he started kissing her.

The woman allegedly woke up about 11.30pm in a pitch-black room with the man raping her and pulling her hair back with force.

The woman was allegedly in shock and tried to remain calm to prevent further conduct.

As the woman left the man allegedly handed her a banana from the bedside table and said "you will need this for later".
