Earlier this week three women busted a man pouring a drugs in his date’s drink. Now, the judge is making an example of him. Finally the justice system is doing something right. Check this out.
The man accused of an attempted date rape that made national headlines has been identified.
Michael Hsu was arrested last Thursday after a group of three friends said they noticed him spike the drink of his date at a Santa Monica, California restaurant.
The 24-year-old was taken into custody at the restaurant and booked on charges of drugging with intent to commit a felony.
As of Tuesday morning, he was still being held at the Santa Monica Police Department Jail on $1million bail. He is also due in court later Tuesday for a hearing.
The three women who claim to have busted Hsu on Thursday recounted their tale on Facebook the day after the incident, creating a meme that has been shared more than 110,000 times.
The picture shows the three women in a Charlie’s Angels stance with the line ‘Don’t roofie someone on our watch’.
Sonia Ulrich, Marla Saltzer and Monica Kenyon were out for dinner at FIG restaurant when they say they noticed the man pour something into his companion’s drink as they shared a bottle of wine.
In their Facebook post titled ‘GUESS WHO STOPPED A RAPE LAST NIGHT?! THESE GALS!’, Sonia details what happens.
Jezebel reported a manager at the restaurant corroborated the women’s story.
Sonia wrote on Facebook: ‘Monica, Marla and I were at Fig at the Fairmont for their delicious happy hour (‘Fig at 5.’ Treat yourself).
‘I was going on about something and saw Monica staring behind and making a funny face. I stopped. “What’s going on?” After a few second she said, “That guy just put something in her drink”.’
Hsu allegedly slipped something in the woman’s drink while she was in the bathroom so Sonia raced to the lady’s room to tip off the unsuspecting victim.
Sonia waited by the bathroom sink for the woman to exit the stall and when she did she confronted her.
‘Hey! Um, this is kind of weird, but, uh, we saw the guy you were with put something in your drink,’ Sonia said she told the woman.
She responded: ‘Oh My God.’
The post continues: ‘(She was) shocked, kind of numb, so I babbled “Yeah, my girlfriend said she saw him put something in your drink and we had to say something. Woman to woman…you know. We had to say something. How well do you know that guy?”
‘I was expecting to hear “We just met”, but I got: “He’s one of my best friends”.’
The woman told Sonia she had known Hsu for a year and a half and that they worked together.
When the two walked back to their tables Marla was speaking with a server to get a manager involved.
