Two men have been arrested after a video posted on social media purportedly showed a female nightclubber’s drink being spiked.
Avon and Somerset Police said two 18-year-old men, both from Gloucestershire, have been arrested on suspicion of administering a noxious substance and are in custody.
Footage on social media appears to show a man dropping a tablet into a young woman’s drink while reaching over to collect his own drink.
Police said inquiries into the incident, which is said to have happened at a Bristol nightclub, were ongoing.
“We’d like to hear from anyone else with information which could help,” a police spokesman said.
“If you believe your drink has been tampered with on a night out, we’d recommend alerting bar or security staff at the venue, reporting the incident to police by calling 101 and seeking immediate medical advice.
“The same applies if you’re with someone and believe their drink has been tampered with.
“Adding a substance to someone’s drink without their knowledge or permission is a serious offence, especially if used for the commission of other offences, and could result in serious harm if the person suffers an adverse reaction.”
