The court heard how the men watched television, had dinner and drinks before engaging in sexual activity.Judge Aubrey said: “On the website you asserted you were looking for ‘fun’.“What occurred in his own home cannot be classified as such unless you are an extremely dangerous person.” Shannon, who wore a white T-shirt in the dock and sat staring at the floor throughout the hearing, admitted robbery.He has previous convictions for battery and common assault, which were described as domestic violence cases.Shannon then went outside for a cigarette before launching his furious attack, during which he threatened to kill him.He then loaded the man’s car with televisions, a sound system and a microwave.
The victim persuaded his attacker to untie the cord so he could get the items, before alerting a neighbour.
Shannon fled on foot but was later caught through his fingerprints.
