Man acquitted of storming a house with a machete for a stranger’s sex fantasy – at the WRONG address
Man exempted from storming a house armed with a machete was hired to do it to fulfill a stranger’s bizarre sex fantasy – but was given the WRONG address
- A Sydney was found not guilty of entering a house with the intention of intimidating
- He entered the wrong national NSW address with a machete for a sex fantasy
- The prospective customer wanted to be tied with a broom rubbed on his underwear
- The resident at the wrong address told the two intruders to “eavesdrop”
Two men hired to perform a stranger’s sexual fantasy of being tied up while dressed in his underpants went to the wrong rural NSW address with machetes, but politely left after they realized their mistake.
One of the men from Sydney was found not guilty in the NSW court of entering the house in July 2019 with the intention of intimidating while armed with an attacking weapon.
Judge Sean Grant described the facts as unusual and said the crown had not ruled out the reasonable possibility of the man entering the house as part of a legal plan to carry out a sexual fantasy.
“They were wearing the machetes as a prop or something to use in that fantasy,” the judge said earlier this month in his published reasons for the acquittal.
“The fantasy was unwritten and there was discretion about how it would be executed.”

According to statements filed during the brief trial conducted only by the judge, a man who lived with Griffith in western NSW wanted to be tied up and rub a broomstick around his underwear.
“He was willing to pay $ 5,000 if it was” really good, “said the judge.
The potential customer had a “history and tendency to engage people’s services,” said a police officer.
After making arrangements with a man on Facebook for people to be able to participate in the role play, he sent his address which he later updated after moving to another house.
But on July 14, a resident who lived on the same street as the first address noticed that light came from his living room when he got up to go to the toilet.
Assuming it was a friend who came to make coffee every day, he yelled ‘Bugger off, it’s too early’.
After hearing a voice asking if his name was the intended client’s, the resident turned on his bedside lamp, took off his sleep apnea mask, and saw two men standing by his bedside.
They wore machetes that faced the ground.
They started to leave after he told them his name – which was not the intended customer’s.
One man apologized saying “Sorry mate” and shook the resident’s hand while the other said Goodbye before they drove off. The resident then contacted the police.
When the men and their driver arrived at the right place, the potential customer noticed a “very big knife” in his pants that he put in the car after being told not to bring it inside.
They drank coffee and the customer made bacon, eggs and noodles before the suspect fell asleep on the couch.

The police showed up shortly after and found the machete in the car.
The judge said the crown had proven that the man had entered the first house with a machete, but had not proved that he intended to intimidate.
His lawyer successfully submitted the entry for a non-criminal purpose.
“It was a commercial agreement to tie up a half-naked man in his underpants and stroke it with a broom,” said the lawyer.
