An 18-year-old woman tied a man her age to a chair with an electrical cord, doused him with kerosene, forced him to eat dog food and hit him on the head with a broom for allegedly gossiping about her and her lesbian girlfriend.
Judge Frank Gucciardo of a county court Tuesday said Georgia Bucknell forced the 18-year-old man to swallow the dog food.
'This is what dogs eat. F***** eat it,' the Herald Sun quoted her as yelling at the man.
Bucknell carried out the attack along with two other woman and a man because she believed the man, whom she described as her one-time best friend, had been 'gossiping' about her and her relationship with another woman.
The attackers stole a number of items from the man and forced him to disclose his ATM pin number before robbing his bank account of $300.
'This was a cruel, degrading and terrifying ordeal of fear and violence which is intolerable to any right thinking member of the community,' Gucciardo said.
He sentenced Bucknell to a two-year term in a youth justice centre, but said her detention would be re-assessed in six to nine months.
