Here’s a piece of advice that applies to everyone, not just college students. Never, ever walk away from your drink or leave it unattended.

Police investigating after 2 Holy Cross students say they may have been drugged at Worcester bar

An investigation is underway in Worcester after two female College of the Holy Cross students say they believe they were drugged while drinking at a local bar last month.

A college spokesman says school officials received a report in December that two women believed they were drugged while drinking at Moonshiners Bar on Water Street.

The women said they became extremely disoriented and ill after consuming a moderate amount of alcohol at the bar on Dec. 5. Each sought medical attention and one of them later tested positive for the date rape drug GHB.

In a statement, the school spokesman said the report was shared with Worcester police and the information was sent to students in a campus email that included tips for keeping safe and resources.

Members of the Holy Cross community says they are disturbed by the news.

It would be so refreshing to have a news story actually cover the basic points.

Separate incidents or together? Same bar, same night, same time? Were the girls friends or unacquainted?

and so on. More journalism school graduates than ever before, and darn few can construct that basic Who/What/When/Where paragraph.

Why did the college receive the report. I am assuming both of the women were over 21 and the incident happened at a bar located off-campus. But I agree that journalism was lacking here, and not surprised by that at all.
