BEND,Ore. – A Bend woman claims she and her friend were drugged while visiting a bar downtown.
On Oct. 22, Ataya Swindlehurst said she visited a local bar in Bend with a friend for an hour, and had two drinks. Swindlehurst said Wednesday that after the second drink, she couldn’t remember anything that occurred later that night. She claims from 30 minutes after her second drink, she couldn’t remember anything until the next day.
Swindlehurst said she never walked away from her drinks, but at one point in the night, she recognized her drink was slightly shifted.
Bend police said they are working to obtain the surveillance video, and will have Swindlehurst and her friend identify the men they suspect drugged them.
