A FAKE hooker in­vited men back to her flat for sex, but in­stead her boyfriend would steal their money and chase them off with a pit­bull, a court heard yes­ter­day.

Two pun­ters have al­legedly been conned by Emily Ak­ers, 31, and her part­ner Carl Ma­son, 33.

The court heard that one man, who can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, handed over £140 and was strip­ping off for sex when Mr Ma­son jumped out.

He was wield­ing a pit­bull as a weapon and screamed at him “Get out you per­vert” be­fore get­ting him in a thumb lock and march­ing him out of the house.

The man told the hear­ing: “I was in shock. Ev­ery­thing had been so quick, so fast. I was in shock. I started scream­ing ‘Give me my money back’.”

A sec­ond man booked an ap­point­ment over the in­ter­net af­ter spot­ting Miss Aker’s ad­ver­tis­ing her­self as Jes­sica of York who “just loved sex”.

But when he handed over cash and was al­legedly scared off by Mr Ma­son, he left his mo­bile phone in the flat.

In­crim­i­nat­ing

The next day, the pros­e­cu­tion at York Crown Court ar­gue, he was con­tacted by Ma­son who told him that un­less he re­ceived money he would send an in­crim­i­nat­ing picture of the man hand­ing over cash to Miss Ak­ers to all his con­tacts on the phone.

They fi­nally set­tled on an amount of £5,000 pounds, to be handed over at a meet­ing in York the com­ing Fri­day.

The man told the court: “In re­turn for the cash he said he would go away. I would get my phone back and the pho­to­graphs.”

But be­fore he was due to hand over the cash the man con­tacted po­lice who ar­ranged a sting op­er­a­tion and ar­rested Ma­son.

In po­lice in­ter­views both Ak­ers and Ma­son claimed the pay­ments to her were only for her com­pan­ion­ship and that both Mr Brown and the other man wanted more.

They say that Ma­son had in­ter­vened to pro­tect her.

The pair deny con­spir­acy to steal, black­mail and of threat­en­ing by phone.

Ma­son also de­nies two charges of as­sault.

The trial con­tin­ues.
