Woman targeted in suspected spiking attack in Bury St Edmunds

A woman quickly fell ill following a night out after, what is believed to have been, a spiking incident in Bury St Edmunds.

The woman, who was drinking in Wetherspoons on Saturday night, passed out and was struggling to breath following a couple of drinks with friends.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Police can confirm they received a report from a female victim of a possible drink spiking in Bury St Edmunds. On Saturday 27 November the 50 year old had been drinking in a pub in the town when she has left her drink to go to the toilet. On her way from leaving the premises she said she felt unwell and she has then become unconscious in the toilets at another licensed venue. She was taken to hospital for treatment and enquires are on-going.

The incident is suspected to have taken place in Wetherspoons.

On a post on social media one of the ladies friends said that she suspected that she was spiked potentially via injection as she has what is believed to be a needle mark and small bruising on her left knee.

The woman was treated by paramedics and is said to have made a recovery but has been left shaken by the incident.
