A 36-year-old Melbourne sex worker was arrested yesterday as detectives investigate allegations that he has attempted to infect at least one male client with HIV.
The man, who had advertised his services in local gay publications, was apprehended in the north Melbourne suburb of Reservoir.
Police will charge him with attempting to intentionally infect another person with a serious disease, reports The Age today.
The man has not been named in news reports, but if you suspect you have used his services or have any other information, please contact Sergeant Glen Wilson of Epping police (phone 03 9409 8100), and your information will be dealt with confidentially.
Using condoms and water-based lube is the best and easiest way to protect yourself from HIV. If you are unsure of your HIV status, details about sexual health testing in your local area is available here.
