‘Suspicious’ man may have slipped drinks to ROTC students in Arizona at a ball
Arizona police are looking for a man suspected of pouring drinks to students at a military ball after several teenagers reported they were drugged.
According to police, seven students felt dizzy and vomited during a Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps dance at the banquet hall of the Double Tree Inn in Flagstaff on March 11.
Surveillance footage later showed a mustachioed man “suspiciously” lurking in the area, “checking conference room doors” and walking “up and down in an elevator near the lobby,” the Flagstaff Police Department said in a Facebook post.
When the man confronted the chaperone at a ball hosted by Coconino High School, he claimed to be a “sergeant”. Major Travis Palmer,” the police said.
He then said he needed to answer a phone call before leaving quickly, according to police, who released a picture of him on Wednesday and said he was wanted for questioning.
Less than 30 minutes after he left, six female students and one male student fell ill, vomiting, nauseous and dizzy, according to police.
“[The students] thought their drinks were spiked,” the post reads.
Several teenage students were taken to Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment.
Police say the man they’re looking for is about 6 feet tall, of a large build, with a large mustache and dark hair. He is probably 40 or 50 years old.
