Hengky Irawan, 62, from Mortdale appeared in Parramatta Local Court yesterday after he was arrested for tampering with a gay club’s lubricant dispenser. He was charged with administering poison intended to injure or cause distress or pain, as well as entering a building with intent to commit an indictable offence and malicious damage.
After his initial arrest a month ago, he was granted conditional bail after it emerged that he allegedly tried to replace anal lubricant with hydrochloric acid.
Hydrochloric acid is a clear, highly corrosive acid which if comes into contact with skin can cause irreparable damage with a corrosive effect.
The club had installed security sensors on its dispensers which is how Irawan was apprehended by the club’s security personnel.
The defendant’s laywer asked the court for a 6 week adjournment so that Irawan undergo a psychiatric assessment, which was granted.
The case will continue on the 1st of November.
