Beware Perfume Vendors

this could be a shaggy dog story or it could be true, but it's worth mentioning perhaps as it's doing the rounds on the net...

there are men supposedly hanging around shopping centre car parks pretending to sell discount perfumes. they ask women if they want to smell a sample which is in fact ETHER. once the lady takes a sniff, and falls unconcious, she is raped.

like i say, could be a wind up, but then who knows...

the geezer will now take off the good samaritan hat and return to more scurrilous activities.

Hello all, I work in NHS hospital, an email from the police came to the hospital about this, although the women were being robbed not raped, although I suppose if you,ve rendered someone insensible it is just as easy in the right circumstances to bundle your vitim into a car as pinch her handbag, then of course you could do whatever takes your sick fancy. So, I guess the police were taking it seriously here,lynnette

juniper, i believe so. if she is not raped then i think she at least has her valuables stolen.

i haven't heard anymore. i wonder if there's been anything in the press about these attacks...
