Boulder police looking into possible drugging on University Hill

This story will be updated.

Boulder Police are currently investigating the possible drugging of two CU students that may have occurred in conjunction with parties on University Hill Wednesday night.

The women were treated at Boulder Community Health for “unknowingly ingesting drugs” while drinking, according to a release from the Boulder Police Department. It’s unclear so far if the incidents occurred together or separately.

BPD spokesperson Shannon Aulabauch told the CU Independent that it’s not confirmed yet whether the victims were drugged or not. The victims have to sign off consent to release their toxicology reports in order for that to be confirmed or denied. She said that because two people reported the same thing in the same morning, BPD wanted to notify the community anyways.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we’re putting out a warning so that people are extra vigilant that this may be occurring,” Aulabauch said. The precise location of the incidents is uncertain as well.

Police noted that someone who’s been drugged may have memory loss, breathing issues, motion difficulties and may appear more intoxicated than should be expected.
