The CMPD report notes that the incident occurred at a new CalAtlantic subdivision in Waxhaw. CalAtlantic quickly sent out a letter to all their sales reps detailing the incident, and warning to all of their agents to always be aware of their surroundings.

The letter states that a customer was “acting suspicious” while in the model home on two separate occasions, each time quickly left when another customer showed up. On their second visit, the customer was seen near the realtor’s desk — during a showing.

The letter then notes that the realtor drank from her water bottle that was left on the desk unattended. Within 20 minutes, her heart started racing, legs went numb, and called 911. She was quickly rushed to the hospital where analysis found traces of a date rape drug was taken to the hospital. According to the letter, a toxicology screening of her bottle found traces of the date rape drug.

“A realtor sometimes they are in a house showing a house and they’re by themselves so its very important they take all their security measure to stay safe,” commented CMPD Officer Johnathan Frisk with the Crime Prevention Division.

The National Association of Realtors recommended that realtors always keep their cell phone nearby, let someone know where they are, and to always be aware of their surroundings.

Many Realtors have now begun to keep date rape drug test strips on hand to quickly test any suspicious drinks during showings.

Police are still looking for the suspect and no charges have been filed.
