A Queensland man will face court after allegedly infected several women he slept with met on dating apps with a serious disease.

It is alleged the 24-year-old from Campwin Beach had sexual relations with several women between November 2022 and July 2023 after meeting them on social media apps.

“It will be alleged he knowingly transmitted a serious disease to women on two occasions,” Queensland Police said in a statement.

The man was arrested in Sarina on Tuesday.

He was due to appear at the Mackay Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
