Gay men of London are being warned to be aware when accepting drinks from strangers after a number of incidents insinuating two men spiking drinks of a club-goer before stealing all their belongings.

The latest incident happened just after the capital celebrated its annual Pride event when a Newham man was befriend by two men who reportedly followed him to the ATM before all catching a cab back to the Newham area.

After arriving the two men offered him a drink which he believes to have been spiked. All the victim remembers is having the drink before passing out and waking up to find all his possessions and been stolen.



Just a month before a similiar incident happened where two men approached another man in the Soho area and followed him to an ATM before heading to East London, where the man later passed out and he too had his possessions stolen.

Police are appealing for information and advising members of the public, particularly those from the gay community, to be diligent when accepting drinks from strangers. 


According to the Newham reporter,
Det Con Jim Morrison from Camden police said after the first case: "While incidents such as this are rare, we advise members of the community to be very careful when accepting drinks from strangers and to be vigilant regarding their own purchased drinks."

The suspects in both incidents are believed to be Eastern European men, aged in their 20s.
Anyone with information can call Camden CID on (020) 8733 5935 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
