Two Pretoria women have been arrested in connection with allegations that they spiked their victims' drinks and robbed them.

The women, aged 25 and 31, were arrested in Mamelodi. They are suspected of stealing a Mazda 3 and cellphones.

The alleged victims were reportedly found unconscious in a Mamelodi cemetery three months ago.

Now Sunnyside police have relaunched an investigation into cases in which victims' drinks were reportedly spiked and their belongings were allegedly stolen after they met people for the first time, police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela said.

"The victims, who had met the suspects in Sunnyside before they passed out, were transported to a local hospital for treatment," Mavimbela added.

He said police also recovered the victims' cellphones in Mamelodi and seized tablets as well as a substance believed to induce sleep.

The two women are expected to be charged with the possession of drugs and theft and are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court soon.
