An 18 year old Australian Defence Force Academy cadet has been arrested and charged with sexual intercourse without consent.
A statement from the Australian Defence Force said the man was charged with "sexual assault on another Defence member".
The incident reportedly happened in Canberra last Saturday and a statement from Australian Capital Territory Policing said police would allege the man assaulted an 18-year-old woman as she was sleeping.
The man was arrested on Friday and was expected to appear at the Magistrates Court.
