A man has been arrested in Northern New South Wales overnight and is expected to be charged over the alleged abduction and sexual assault of a Brisbane woman.

The man in his 50s, arrested yesterday in Grafton, is expected to be extradited to Queensland today to face questions as police investigate the allegations.

A 22-year-old woman told police she was abducted from her home on Cardiff Street in Darra on Monday night about 8pm and held against her will.

The woman was allegedly driven to several spots before being released around 1.30pm yesterday.

She was taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The accused is expected to be extradited back to Queensland charged including with one count each of deprivation of liberty, kidnapping, common assault, enter premises to commit indictable offence and other offences.

He will appear at Brisbane Magistrates' Court today.
