A millionaire former public school boy has been charged with raping a young woman on Bondi Beach.
Entrepreneur Greg Cox, 31, was arrested four days after the alleged assault. He has been ordered to hand over his passport and £68,000 in bail.
The businessman – who runs a firm offering loans to customers with poor credit ratings – spends much of his time flying round the world for pleasure or marketing conferences.
Among his Facebook friends he lists ‘It girl’ Peaches Geldof.
Last night his father Nicholas, 63, and mother Pamela, 54, declined to comment on their son’s arrest.
Cox attended Millfield public school near Glastonbury in Somerset. In recent years he has been a director of a number of companies and was living in a £1million flat in Battersea, South London.
According to posts on Twitter, he and colleagues from his main firm, the Quintessential Finance Group, based in Macclesfield, Cheshire, have been attending digital marketing conferences around the globe.
He is said to have met the woman he is accused of raping at the Bucket List nightclub close to Bondi. The assault is alleged to have occurred on January 22 between 11.10pm and 11.30pm. Cox has denied the allegations against him.
Locations appear to include New York, Hollywood, St Tropez, Sao Paulo and Cape Town.
Cox is due to appear at a Sydney court on April 3.
