A 52-year-old man charged with kidnapping and raping a young European tourist east of Adelaide may be granted home detention bail.
The man came before the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Friday where a report was ordered on the suitability of a proposed place of residence.
The man, who can't be identified, is charged with three counts of rape and one of unlawfully detaining the 24-year-old.
It's alleged he snatched and attacked the woman east of Adelaide in February after responding to an advertisement she had posted online seeking work.
The backpacker had been missing for a day before she was found at a Murray Bridge motel thanks to a tip-off from a member of the public.
She managed to get a desperate message to her family in Europe and another to a friend in Queensland during the ordeal, providing clues about her location.
After she was found, police swooped on a farmhouse in Meningie and arrested the man.
In court on Friday a prosecutor said home detention bail would be opposed regardless of the outcome of the home detention report.
The man's case will return to court next week to receive the report and he has been listed to answer the charges in September.
