Man allegedly added hydrochloric acid to lubricant dispenser in Sydney gay club

A man has been arrested and charged after allegedly putting hydrochloric acid inside what is understood to be a lubricant dispenser at a gay club in Sydney's north-west.

Police said the 62-year-old man went into the Bridge Street premises in Rydalmere on Saturday, filling a dispenser inside a room with the highly corrosive acid.

The ABC understands the club in question is the Aarows club, which describes itself as "Sydney's gay and bi social club" with "three levels of adult adventure".

Items in the room had been fitted with alarms after they had previously been tampered with in a similar way, police said.

Security stopped the man before police arrested him, officers said.
