Two badass San Francisco bartenders foiled a creepy would-be date rapist as he slipped drugs into his companion’s drink.
It looked for all the world as if the couple on a date — he was darkly handsome and a little older than the pretty, petite blonde with the Russian accent — were having a great time together.
“A really great time,” their waitress, Karri Cormican, recalled thinking. “She was facing him, had one of her legs up on the bench seat.” Good body language.
So it came as a shock when after the woman left the window-side table to visit the restroom, Cormican saw the man shake a white powder into the Hefeweizen beer he had ordered for his date.
“Did I really see that?” Cormican asked herself. “Why would he do that? It seemed like they were having fun.”
The waitress took the woman’s beer away, claiming it had come from a fermented keg. Then, when the woman got up to take a phone call, the waitress rushed outside to tell her what she had seen. While the two were outside, the bartender saw the man do it again.
He said to Tatiana, “Let’s go.”
“Your date’s over, mister,” the bartender told him. “She’s staying with us.”
After offering to buy everybody a shot of whiskey, Szlamnik fled while Bridgeman-Oxley was calling the police, who arrived quickly and took possession of the two beers.
Szlamnik was sentenced to six months in jail on narcotics charges.
