A MAN accused of prowling Perth entertainment districts looking for vulnerable men to sexually assault after giving them lifts has been charged with more offences.

Brendon Quintin Webb faced Perth Magistrate’s Court this morning via videolink from Hakea Prison to face two charges of indecent assault and one count of unlawful possession of a controlled or prescription drug.

The alleged indecent assaults were committed against an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old man.

This morning he was hit with a further 15 indecent assault charges.

It has not yet been revealed how many complainants are involved.

A 19-year-old man claims he was picked up about 1am on January 21 outside The Avenue at Club Bay View in Claremont and woke up three hours later in Doubleview to find he was being indecently assaulted.

Police previously said an 18-year-old man was also indecently assaulted after accepting a lift in Northbridge in February.

Webb’s Armadale home and business premises in Nedlands were raided, where evidence was allegedly found on electronic devices.

Mr Webb was not required to enter a plea and has been remanded in custody.

He will next face court on April 15.
