Man Robbed At Pike Place Bar, Says He Might Have Been Drugged

Seattle police are investigating a man’s claim that he was robbed—and possibly drugged—at a bar near Pike Place Market.

According to a police report, the victim was drinking at a bar in the market between 1:30pm and 4:00pm on May 1st. As the victim was leaving the bar, another man approached him in a stairwell and pushed him up against a well, injuring the victim’s head.

The mugger then grabbed the victim’s wallet—which contained about $580—and took off. 

According to the report, the victim told officers he “had only two drinks with his meal yet he felt abnormally dizzy and disoriented while leaving bar, causing him to wonder if he had been drugged.”

The victim didn’t report the incident until May 3rd. The report doesn’t say why he waited to contacted police.
