The accused Majid Azizi had met the woman, who hails from Kolkata, at a party in Arambol on January 21, a Pernem police official said.
He said Azizi took the woman to his rented room after the party, and allegedly forced himself on her.
"The accused was arrested on January 28 under various sections of the IPC, after the woman filed a complaint against Azizi," the official added.
He said Azizi was earlier booked by the Goa Police's Anti-Narcotic Cell under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS), and is currently out on bail.
