A 35-year-old sex worker has been arrested for stealing a client’s BMW after she was informed he had changed his mind when she arrived at his home to perform her services.
The plan apparently fell apart when she arrived and saw a sleeping male who woke and decided to cancel carrying out the agreed sexual activities.
The man informed Whyte that he didn’t have any money to pay her save for £15 to cover her cab fare. However, it was then discovered that her partner, David Donald, 40, bursted into the house and threatened him.
Gavin Burton, a fiscal deputy, told the Dundee Sheriff Court:
“At the time she was offering sexual services as an escort on a website. “She was in a relationship with her co-accused. “On March 22, 2020 the complainer returned home and parked his car. The keys were on the worktop. “He had been drinking two bottles of wine. At 1.30 am he decided to contact an escort he had previously used. “He found the profile of Whyte which included the phrase ‘sexy, friendly and best girlfriend experience ever.’
“He was woken by the sound of the buzzer a short time later and opened the door to let Whyte in.
“He informed her he did not have any money, had changed his mind and did not want anything. She told him she had paid for a taxi.
“He gave her £15 for a taxi and she started to walk towards the door as she seemed OK with that. She walked into the common close and he did not lock the door.
“He was in the kitchen a few seconds when Donald appeared wearing a hoodie and with a Burberry scarf covering his mouth and nose.
“He had his right hand behind his back. He asked the complainer for money. The complainer told him he had no money in his wallet.”
According to reports, Donald told the victim:
“You must have money – you’ve got a BMW” and he pointed at the car keys.
The victim was subsequently instructed to deposit money into a bank account, according to the court. When the victim indicated he needed a name to complete a £50 transaction, the accused informed him his name was David Donald.
After Donald and Whyte were confident that the money has been effectively moved, the victim did not notify the police because he was humiliated. However, after contacting Whyte’s phone and receiving no answer, he then notified the police as he discovered that his car keys and the car has been stolen from the front of his home.
Whyte’s DNA was discovered from the steering wheel and handbrake when the automobile was tracked down to a short distance away.
While Whyte acknowledged taken the automobile on March 23 of last year, while Donald admitted extorting money from the guy by demanding cash and defrauding him of £50. Both defendants were given a delayed sentence for the production of background reports by Sheriff Paul Brown
