How it works:
- Drink spiking cases have doubled from 2015 to 2018 and this is likely to be under-reported.
- Both men and women can be targeted. Drinks can be spiked with GHB, GBL, tranqulizers and ketamine. Once knocked out, your valuables will be stolen or you may be sexually assaulted.
Places to beware:
- Anywhere (e.g. bars and nightclubs)
What to do:
- Do not accept drinks that you have not seen made in front of you. Do not leave it unattended.
- Canned or bottled drinks are recommended as it is more difficult for someone to put a sedative inside.
