Alleged Tinder rapist to face Vic court

A Melbourne man accused of raping women he met through Tinder is due to face court on Monday.

Glenn Hartland, 43, has been charged with multiple counts of rape and false imprisonment relating to four women he met via the dating app between 2014 and 2016.

The Moonee Ponds man and self-described triathlete was taken into custody in December after he allegedly approached a victim and yelled at her from a courier van he was driving.

He applied for bail earlier this month after claiming he'd been assaulted in jail.

But magistrate Roslyn Porter denied the application, saying Hartland was an unacceptable risk to the community.

Police claim Hartland used several accounts with different aliases to meet women using Tinder.

He is expected to fight the allegations and will face a committal hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday.
