David Nelson, 27, of Ireland, wants to alert tourists to Tenerife. In March, the young man who currently works in Switzerland was with friends on the Spanish holiday island. On March 23, the group went to the exit in Adeje. At the end of the night, however, Nelson lost sight of his friends. He wanted to take a cab to take him home. He was approached by a woman.
The stranger wanted to seduce him, he describes the incident to the media. When he rejected her, she sprayed a substance on his face. "I was later informed by the police that it was the scopolamine drug," says Nelson about the Irish Independent.
"The drug turns you into a zombie."
What happened after this incident, the 27-year-old boy can only vaguely remember. "My phone was taken from me, my gold watch, a bracelet and 600 euros from my wallet. So I was taken to an ATM and the wife deducted as much as possible from my Irish and Swiss bank accounts until payment was denied. The drug turns you into a zombie. "
The woman must be between 20 and 30 years old and have curly hair. Police told Nelson that tourists are regularly overloaded with scopolamine. The drug is often abused as a narcotic and also as a drug of rape. With the odorless and tasteless impact, the victims are left unwilling and finally stolen or raped. Because it decomposes quickly, the drug is later on in the body hardly detectable.
