    Police issue warning after women given date rape drugs near DU

    DENVER — A warning from police at the University of Denver Friday. They’re investigating multiple reports women may have been given date rape drugs last Sunday.Three incidents happening near the DU campus, somewhere along a seven-block stretch, from the 2000 to 2700 block of S. University Blvd.Two DU students hit a couple of bars along S. University last Sunday about 9:40 p.m. But they don’t know what hit them.

    “Local bars were potentially having issues with date rape drugs,” says Gillian Kaag, DU psychologist, who counsels victims of sexual assault.
    The two women become separated.
    One wakes up in an unfamiliar building with no memory of how she got there. Police say it’s unclear where the other girl awoke. Both think they were drugged, but not sexually assaulted.

    Denver Police say a third student reported to them possibly being drugged near campus, but they’re unsure where.
    “It makes me angry but it also motivates me to prevent this from happening, to increase awareness and put more energy into prevention efforts.”

    Some of that awareness comes through campus-wide email alerts. “I got it this morning and I thought how terrible and I’m happy to be taking this self-defense class,” says DU graduate student Laura Jagla.
    Some of the prevention is through a program called rape aggression defense or RAD.

    The women’s self-defense class teaches women how to survive danger — but also how to avoid it altogether.
    They tell women to never lose control of their drink.
    “Most drugs they’re enhanced so much, most of the time you ingest these pills, through drinks, they’re tasteless, there’s no smell,” says campus police officer Sgt. Doug Hasty.

    It’s a lesson most women on campus already know.
    “When I do go out, I keep my drink with me, I don’t leave it somewhere. I don’t accept drinks from guys,” says DU grad Jillian Neilson.
    It can be a vulnerable time for students on their own for the very first time. But DU is teaching them how to fight back.

    Some say students have to be smarter.
    “Part of it is, you’re in the moment, having fun but I think lot falls on the girl’s shoulder too be more a little more aware, a little more smart,” says Neilson.
    Police can’t confirm that any of the women were drugged because none of them went to the hospital to be tested.
