Uni student finds 'BITE MARKS' on arm after being 'spiked' on night out as she still has bruises two days later

A UNI student has found a "bite mark" on her arm after allegedly being spiked on a night out – and still has bruising two days later.

Hattie Brown, 18, woke up in a club toilet to find what looked like human teeth marks with no idea how they got there.

The Exeter theology student said that she lost her friends and had a complete memory gap before she woke up in the loos of Fever, Exeter.

She said: “I was really confused. I looked down at my arm and there were teeth indentations. I saw that I had been bitten by a human and I was really confused because I’ve never really heard of that happening before.

“I’m assuming that I must have been spiked because I don’t understand how I could have gone from being pretty much sober to having complete memory loss, and how I would have been bitten that hard on the arm without feeling it.

“It’s one of those things where you will just never understand what was going through the mind of that person and how it happened.

"Part of me doesn’t want to know what happened, and I’ve kind of accepted that I won’t, but it’s so bizarre.”

She added that she is still suffering with bruising, swelling and pain two days later.

“It’s just scary, especially the injection. You can put measures in place to stop people from spiking your drink, but you can’t wear armour into a club, it’s not realistic.

"As soon as you’re out of the club, from what I’ve seen, they’re not responsible anymore. I think it could be a good idea they check up on people more, and for there to be reassurance that you can talk to a bouncer rather than being scared.

"I know a lot of my friends don’t feel that they can talk to bouncers. If they think they’ve been spiked they’re not going to tell them because they’ll get kicked out.”

She shared her story on TikTok, gaining over 120,000 views, telling people to “stay with your mates, let your mates know where you are and where you’re going”.

It comes amid a huge rise in alleged drink spiking incidents reported across the UK, using varying drugs and a range of methods including needles.

Another student was left needing a walking stick after she was spiked, saying doctors almost "raised their eyebrows" and "accused me of taking drugs" when she reported it.

Polly Sutherland, 24, felt "let down" by her GP and Lancaster University after reporting that her drink was spiked at the student union club.

Ms Sutherland, who has type 1 diabetes, had to use a walking stick for around a month as the spiking damaged her blood sugar levels.

And it's not just students, a mum told of how she was left unable to move her entire body and became "terribly ill" after her drink was spiked.

Hannah Cornwall, 51, believes her drink was drugged in a "quiet bar" while out with two friends on a Friday night.
