Another suspected drugging

Register • Jul 21, 2015 at 3:25 PM

Put-in-Bay police are investigating another suspected drugging that occurred Friday. 

The Register received a news tip a young woman was "Lifeflighted from the island" after being drugged. 

The Put-in-Bay Police Department acknowledged an incident occurred at about 10 p.m. Friday, but provided no details about what it might have entailed. 

An incident report gave the time and  the location as "Bay View at C Dock."

But the only other information in the report is cryptic: "Investigation pending..."

More than a half-dozen potential drugging reports have been made to the Put-in-Bay police since May. 

One woman told police she was "roofied" and then raped by a manager at the island bar where she worked in early May. 

An investigation of that incident was finished last week and sent to Ottawa County Prosecutor Mark Mulligan for review and possible presentation to a grand jury, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff's office.

It appears the suspect refused to talk with the detective, however, who conducted the investigation. 

A group of people also reported they each became unconscious shortly after meeting someone who took their photographs when they were on the island.

Another woman told police she became violently ill during an island visit July 1. The woman was with her boyfriend for a birthday celebration when she became unconscious. 

The woman, 26, tested positive for the psychoactive drug Benzodiazepine, according to a Put-in-Bay police report.

Another suspected drugging occurred July 6. 

PIB police said more information on Friday's incident would be available Tuesday.
