SPD, Spokane Arena investigating drugged drinks claim at concert

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A scary reminder from two women who just wanted to have fun at the Garth Brooks concert Thursday night: always watch your drinks.

They say they think two men slipped something into their drinks.

Spokane police have been made aware of the situation and they are working with the security at the Spokane Arena, looking through surveillance trying to track down the two men who could have done this.

The two sisters don't want to be identified after they say what happened to them. They say they came inside the Spokane Arena, got drinks, and went to get nachos all before the concert started. "As we're in line, these two gentlemen started talking to us," one sister said.

They say there were no red flags with the men. One of the sisters left briefly, leaving the other one in line. "Left me holding two drinks and I was like, 'Oh my hands are cold' and didn't think anything of it and he's like, 'Yeah let me hold your drinks,'" said the sisters.  

The men looked normal. They had regular clothes and looked like they were in their early 40's."He told us they were with their wives, like it didn't seem like it was a bad situation at all. At one point, they started encouraging us to drink our drinks. They're like, 'Why don't you drink those drinks?' but they were also drinking drinks," the sisters said.  

However, everything changed. They drank and the two sisters went to their concert seats. "All of a sudden, I couldn't lift my arm up. They felt really heavy," one said.

They say they then left the concert, heading to their car but whatever was in their system, they say it hit them 100 percent.  "We're sick and throwing up."

Eventually one sister went to the hospital, explaining what happened to the nurse. "This sounds like symptoms of a date rape," she said.

The women also say they are missing their debit cards and their ID's.

Police say don't let anyone touch your drinks especially in a crowded place. 

The Spokane Arena says they are aware of what happened and are investigating.
