Fears ‘extremely sexually active’ HIV-positive European is deliberately infecting Australian women by having unprotected sex with them

  • A woman issued a warning on Facebook claiming two women have been infected
  • Perth man is accused of spreading disease to women he met on dating sites
  • He is described as European-Australian, in his early 30s, with tattoos  

Australian women are being urged to ‘get tested’ over fears an ‘extremely sexually active’ man has been intentionally infecting his partners with HIV.  

In a Facebook post shared on Sunday, a woman issued an urgent warning after two women reportedly contracted the virus after having unprotected sex with a Perth man.

The man, who was not named due to an ‘ongoing court case’ is said to be a ‘regular on various dating websites such as Oasis, Plenty of Fish, Positive Singles, as well as Facebook messenger.  

A Perth man known to frequent dating sites and singles pages is accused of putting women at risk of contracting HIV after allegedly having unprotected sex with them

He was described as a European Australian in his early 30s, with tattoos.

‘So far, there are two confirmed cases of women who have contracted the HIV virus and both had sexual relations with this man in recent weeks-months. He has recently travelled to the eastern states of Australia and is known to be extremely sexually active,’ the post read.    

‘Police are attempting to contact identified sexual partners, it is likely there are many others unidentified so urge anyone who has had sexual relations with someone of this description to have a full health screening ASAP.’

Police declined to comment on the investigation when contacted by Daily Mail Australia. 

In a separate case last month, a 37-year-old Sydney man was arrested and charged after allegedly infecting a woman with HIV. 

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting the same man is responsible for the cases of HIV in Perth.

Police alleged the pair met on social media before they had consensual sexual intercourse. 

The woman claimed the man did not inform her he was infected with the communicable illness.
