A Wollongong woman has admitted trying to shakedown a "sugar daddy" she met on the internet while they had sex at her mother's house.
Shannon Haynes first met the 37-year-old man in early October 2018 via the dating website Seeking Arrangement - which facilitates "sugar baby" and "sugar daddy" meetings in exchange for money and an allowance.
Haynes, who goes by the name Sienna on the website and appears to have only signed up three days before the incident, describes herself as a "fun, smart and sexy blonde bombshell" with "a killer hourglass figure" in her profile.
"I enjoy the finer things in life....I will say I have expensive taste and love shopping," she wrote alongside several pictures, including one where she is in a nurse fancy dress outfit.
"I like to live a party lifestyle with expensive dinners and spontaneous holidays."
The man initially agreed to pay Haynes $1000 a week for her services, but later changed the agreement to $300 per meeting.
The pair met at Haynes' mother's house in Fernhill in the early hours of October 12 and began having sex after the man placed $300 on the beside table.
Haynes stopped the encounter about 10 minutes later and asked to be paid $1000 but the man refused. They resumed having sex but Haynes stopped again a short time later and asked for more money.
The man said Haynes was sending messages on her phone at the time and told him she was buying drugs.
Haynes then asked the victim if they could go to an ATM so he could get more money. He refused, but said he could pay her more next time they met.
Haynes told the man he wasn't leaving the house, got up from where she'd been sitting and phoned her co-offender, Michael Sullivan.
The victim started getting dressed but was interrupted when Sullivan and another man, Justin Diaz, arrived at the house. Diaz was armed with a tomahawk.
The two men confronted the victim, demanding he pay Haynes more money.
When he refused, Diaz swung the tomahawk at him, hitting him in the left ear.
The victim screamed, waking Haynes' mother from her sleep.
Sullivan and Diaz again demanded money, prompting the victim to pick up the $300 and saying "take it, it's all I have".
The man agreed to leave with the two attackers and accompany them to an ATM however was able to escape to his car and drive off when they walked outside the house.
Sullivan and Diaz attempted to follow the victim but lost sight of him.
The man drove to Corrimal Police Station and contacted triple zero. He was later taken to Wollongong Hospital for treatment to a de-gloving wound to his ear.
Haynes and Sullivan were arrested within 24 hours. Diaz was arrested the following month.
The two men have subsequently pleaded guilty to charges of reckless wounding in company and using an offensive weapon with intent to intimidate. They will be sentenced on August 9.
Haynes on Wednesday pleaded guilty to a charge of demanding property with intent to steal. She will face sentencing on July 3.
