A homophobic man in Australia has been arrested by police and charged to court, after he allegedly swapped lube with a highly corrosive acid at a gay venue.

The suspect emptied the lubricant kept in a dispenser, and filled it up with acid to express his disgust for homosexuals.
Unfortunately for him, the guards have faced similar incidents in the past before alarms were fitted to the tamper-proof machines which he was unaware of.
According to The Evening Standard, security stopped the 62-year-old as he added hydrochloric acid into the machine at “gay and bi social club” Aarows in north-west Sydney.
They guards were alerted after alarms sounded out warnings of tampering.
The suspect has been charged with offences including administering a poison with intent to injure or cause pain.
Australia’s Daily Telegraph newspaper said detectives had not established any motive but there was “no indication of hate motivation”. The suspect was granted conditional bail and is due to appear in court on 20 September.
A club-goer told the Australian network ABC he thought it was a “sick” thing to do.
Asked about the suspect’s motive, he added: “It could be anything really. People are perverted”.
On the Aarows club website, a description reads: “Aarows has now long been established as Sydney’s premier health, recreation & social centre where safe sex is permitted regardless of gender.”
