A district court in Perth on Friday sentenced a 26-year-old man to six and a half years imprisonment for his role in two separate incidents of bashing and robbing of gay men. Tyler Dean Borinelli had lured the two men – Perth residents Michael Buhle (57) and another man in his 40s, through the gay dating app Scruff – to isolated construction sites in Gosnells. Both men were viciously attacked by Borrinelli and his associates, with Buhle suffering a fractured skull and broken jaw. Borrinelli was arrested in April and charged with two counts of intent to harm and causing bodily harm, one count of stealing, one count of dealing in drugs and one count of possession of cannabis. Chief Judge Julie Wager convicted Borinelli on all six counts and ordered him to serve four years and six months imprisonment, including the time he has spent in prison, before being eligible for parole. The case against two other alleged associates of Borinelli – one in each case – has been committed to the magistrate’s court.
