SYDNEY: A man accused of raping a teenage girl at Strathfield Railway Station was released on bail on January 1, Eastern Time, Australia, because the police have made new progress in the case. The man said that the truth must emerge.

Ben Kooy, 34, told the Daily Telegraph after leaving Silverwater Prison that the truth about him and the 17-year-old girl in the train station toilet last Wednesday afternoon will be made public in court.

Allegedly, Kooy and the girl were both on the train from Redfern to Hornsby, and she had chatted with her on the train. Later, the girl was dragged off a northern train and was forcibly dragged into a dirty toilet, where the girl was raped for more than 20 minutes. He was arrested shortly afterwards.

Last Thursday, after showing his face briefly in court, he was officially refused bail. However, the Parramatta Bail Court was informed that the police officer in charge of investigating the case had notified the prosecutor that the restriction on his refusal of bail could be withdrawn. Court documents show that the bail change was due to new developments in the case by the police. "With the consent of the prosecutors, the man can allow bail." The document said. It is reported that Kooy was not required to have a curfew or a guarantor. The only bail condition is not to contact witnesses in the case.

He left the prison less than 3:30 yesterday afternoon. Kooy said the four days of detention in the past were "terrible". He also said that the truth should have surfaced. It is reported that this Wednesday, he will appear in the local court in Burwood. Currently, he still pleads not guilty to a charge of sexual intercourse.
