Men robbed 64-year-old prostitute, police allege

A MAN who allegedly robbed an ageing prostitute at a Hervey Bay motel, has been returned to prison.

Duddley Mathew Waterton, 32, is accused of masquerading as a client seeking the services of a 64-year-old sex worker, in order to gain access to the woman's apartment.

Police will allege Waterton was in the company of another man when he forced his way into the room and stole her money on the night of November 16.

A Hervey Bay Police spokesman said "physical violence is alleged to have occurred".

Describing what had occurred as a "targeted attack", he said the men had "falsely arranged a meeting for sexual services" with the intention of committing a crime.

When police arrived at the Torquay motel where the woman was staying, she had suffered minor cuts and bruising.

It will not be alleged that the woman was working illegally.

Waterton, who was on parole at the time of the alleged incident, was arrested on Monday night and charged with robbery and entering with intent.

Detectives are hoping to speak with a male aged in his 20s who is known to them.

Anyone with further information about the alleged robbery, can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
