Police: Beware arranging dates online

Friday, July 5 2013

POLICE are cautioning teenagers against arranging dates with strangers via popular social media sites, due to reports of date rapes during previous July-August school vacations. “We’ve had a few reports that as a result of meetings arranged via popular social networking sites...date rapes (and) offences have occurred,” Public Information Officer with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, Sergeant Wayne Mystar, yesterday advised teenagers.

He was speaking during the weekly press briefing at Police Administration Building, corner of Edward and Sackville Streets, Port-of-Spain.

Teenagers were also cautioned against accepting drinks from others if they had not seen it being poured and served because this significantly reduces the chance of the drink being ‘spiked’ with date rape drugs which often have no colour, smell, or taste. The three most common date rape drugs are Rohypnol, gamma hydroxybutyric (GHB) and Ketamine.

“Teenagers, do not allow persons to bring drinks for you. Try to supervise the (mixing or pouring) of what you are drinking, even if it’s not alcoholic because any drink can be spiked,” Mystar cautioned.

He noted previous holidays during which reports were made to the police about incidents involving teenagers and spiked drinks.
