A man who left the Unanderra Hotel with a woman for a night of sex and drug-taking ended up being seriously wounded and robbed of $16,000 in pokies winnings by three men she later alerted.
Kyrsten Campbell faced Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday where she pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery and using corporal violence causing wounding.
Tendered court documents state Campbell and three alleged male co-accused were at the venue from about 6.45pm on October 11, 2022 when a woman introduced Campbell to the victim.
The three alleged co-accused were in different areas of the pub when one of them received a text message from Campbell.
"Yo about to leave the pub with him now and head to his," Campbell's message read.
CCTV captured Campbell leaving the venue about 8.20pm with a four pack of Vodka Cruisers and the victim - a man in his 50s who had previously won $80,000 on the pokies at Wests Illawarra.
The pair arrived at the victim's Port Kembla address in his black Audi. When inside, the victim said he and Campbell "engaged in a sex act and smoked some drugs".
About 10pm, Campbell went to leave out the front door, with the victim believing she was being picked up by a friend.
However she instead let the three co-accused from the pub inside - two of whom were armed.
Court documents state two of the men unleashed a violent attack against the victim in his hallway, including being slashed with a machete and wounded several times.
One of the men stabbed the victim in the back of the neck with a serrated knife. The attack moved to the victim's bedroom where he was robbed of the cash in his pockets.
"He's got more ... take it all," Campbell said.
One of the men tried to calm down the other two and said "enough, you're gonna kill him".
The victim attempted to fight back by grabbing a knife from of the men, but he was quickly disarmed and punched in the face several times.
CCTV installed outside the victim's home captured the men leaving in the Mitsubishi Outlander - the same vehicle they were seen in at the pub, while Campbell was seen running from the home.
The victim was taken to Wollongong Hospital and received three surgeries for his wounds, including a skin graft for his forearm.
Court documents state there is no evidence that Campbell knew the men were going to be armed prior to their arrival at the victim's home.
There is also no evidence she received any financial gain.
The quartet, who live in Western Sydney, were arrested later that month. Campbell will receive her punishment date at Wollongong District Court on October 27.
