A MAN has admitted sexually assaulting more than a dozen men after luring them from Perth entertainment districts.

Brendon Quintin Webb, 41, appeared in Perth Magistrates Court on Friday via video link from prison and pleaded guilty to 17 counts of unlawful and indecent assault, plus one count of unlawfully possessing a controlled or prescription drug.

Police were alerted to the sexual predator when a 19-year-old victim came forward.

The complainant said he was given a lift about 1am on January 21 outside The Avenue at Club Bay View in Claremont and woke up three hours later in Doubleview to find Webb indecently assaulting him.

Another man, aged 18, was indecently assaulted after accepting a lift in Northbridge on February 24.

Webb’s Armadale home and business premises in Nedlands were raided four days later and evidence of more victims was found on electronic devices.

Police said he prowled nightclub districts looking for vulnerable men to molest for about 18 months.

Webb will be sentenced in July.
