A Christchurch woman was kidnapped, assaulted and raped over the weekend, police allege.

Luke James Henry, 31, has been arrested for the alleged attack, which police say spanned Friday and Saturday.

Henry, of Christchurch, faces 14 charges including unlawfully detaining a woman, three charges of rape, two of sexual violation, assault, and assault with intent to injure her.

Police arrested him on Saturday for allegedly driving recklessly, failing to stop, and driving while disqualified.


He appeared in the Christchurch District Court this morning clutching an envelope of documents.

The court heard that he refused to see a duty solicitor and that he wanted to be self-represented.

"No plea on everything and get me remanded in custody," Henry told Judge Gary MacAskill.

He was remanded in custody without plea until September 22.
