Possible drugging reported at Stanford

Incident occurred at on-campus housing community

Two female Stanford University students reported that they believed they had been drugged after drinking alcohol during a gathering at the Ujamaa house on campus, the Department of Public Safety said in a crime alert Saturday evening.

The incident occurred late Friday night and was reported to DPS early Saturday morning.

When speaking with first responders, a female student stated she had been drinking earlier in the evening and thought she may have been drugged at Ujamaa house, according to the alert. Minutes later, another woman separately told first responders she had also consumed alcohol there earlier in the evening and thought she might have been drugged.

One of the two women had a drug screen performed at a hospital and the results did not reveal the presence of drugs in her system, according to the alert.

"At this time there is no indication that an additional crime, such as sexual assault, took place," the alert says.
