Drink spiking alert after Jindabyne sex assaults

Two sexual assaults in a week in the Snowy Mountains resort town of Jindabyne have prompted police to issue a warning about drink spiking, as tourists fill pubs during the ski season.
A 41-year-old woman was drinking with friends last Wednesday night at a pub on Kosciuszko Road, Jindabyne, where she met a man and went elsewhere for a drink, police said.
Police said she was then sexually assaulted after possibly having her drink spiked.
Two days later a 21-year-old woman was drinking alone at a pub on Kosciuszko Road, Jindabyne, when a group of men started talking to her.
In the early hours of Saturday she got in a taxi with two of the men, and later woke up in bushland.
Police believe she was sexually assaulted and possibly had her drink spiked.
Monaro Local Area Command duty officer Inspector Tony Hill yesterday released a statement, saying the extra snow season crowds increased the chances of drink and food spiking.
"Locals and tourists to the snowfields need to be vigilant about their personal safety and be aware of the possibility of food or drink spiking," Inspector Hill said.
"The best advice is for patrons to not leave food or drinks unattended, and not to accept food or drinks from strangers.
"It's also recommended that patrons only drink or eat with people they know and trust, and be aware of any unknown person loitering near your table, or where you are sitting.
"If someone suspects that they have been a victim of spiking, seek medical advice in the first instance, and also contact local police."
