The Territorial Police in Kasangati, has in custody a female suspect, identified as Nakiyizi Lydia Asiimwe alias Karungi Hope, on allegations of drugging men, before robbing them.
According to Uganda Police, on the 13.10.2022, a male victim identified as Creffin, went to Afro Club in Kasangati for leisure movements after, he left and went to Queens Palace in Mpererwe, where he ordered for more drinks. He was surprisingly, joined by the suspect whom she had earlier seen at Afro Club. She came and sat next to him and further engaged him in a conversation. They later exchanged contacts.
Eventually, the victim went for a shortcall but upon his return, he found when the suspect was pouring his beer into his glass without permission. When he inquired why she was tampering with his drink, she claimed she thought it was her drink. And they continued drinking together.
Police says the complainant allegedly started feeling unwell and excused himself, so as to return to his home. It was at that stage that the suspect also said she was leaving. They moved out together, but while sloping out of the bar, the victim became unconscious and blacked out. The following day, he woke up and found himself in a lodge, while stripped naked. All his items stolen including two ATM cards for Equity and Centenary Bank and cash totalling 3 million shillings, and withdraws up to a tune of Ugx 10m, before blocking his ATM cards.
”Although our focus has been on protecting and warning girl victims against “date rape” drugs put into cocktails, in order to incapacitate and sexually assault them; we would like to use this opportunity, to warn several men about bar-hoping flirty women, who frequent upscale bars and entertainment places, to purposely prey on men who are drunk, and appear to have money on them. They also target men who are attracted by their looks and engage them in a conversation,” says Police.
‘It is after downing the spiked drinks, that their victims would black out and later wake-up or regain consciousness either in their homes, lodges or road side, with their valuables missing. In extreme cases, they take compromising photos and blackmail the victims,” adds Police.
