Drink spiking is the surreptitious act of sneaking drugs or alcohol to someone’s beverage (primarily alcoholic). Most cases of drink spiking are done to commit sexual assault or robbery. Drink spiking also has been committed out of anger or for sheer entertainment value. Young women are the most common targets of this crime, although men are victims as well.
Most cases of drink spiking occur in night clubs, bars, and at parties.
