  • Eight people going to the party in the street parade were secretly needles pricked.
  • Such needle spikers can serve a variety of purposes.
  • Among other things, the victim’s reaction evokes a sense of power in them.

After a forced break of two years, the Zurich Street Parade celebrated its long-awaited return on Saturday. However, the big party was not without incident.

According to the city police, there have been several cases of needle pricks. So eight people had visited the medical post. These are pricks that party-goers secretly impose on other fun-lovers. But why do criminals reach for the needle?

When asked by, ZHAW criminologist Dirk Baer gave several reasons. The topic was recently discussed intensely in public, which may have encouraged copycats.

Baier explains: “One or the other person may have taken this as an opportunity to try to attack others with a syringe.”

Eight Falls Too Few in the Street Parade

Another motive, according to Baier, is playing out of fear. Experts say, “For Needle Spyker, “there may be a sort of perverse pleasure in scaring others.” Because victims are secretly attacked and have no idea what they’re being injected with. For Baer, ​​it’s Clear: “It triggers a certain sense of power on the part of the perpetrators.”

Finally, according to Baird, sexual motives can also be the focus. Some time ago women mixed something in the drink. Needle spiking may now be “a new way to engage women in sexual activity”.

In any case, the Zurich Mega Party would be a perfect venue for unknown Nadel raiders because of its size. Baier says: “Fortunately, however, the street parade has largely been spared.” Because eight cases are a very small number in relation to those coming in thousands.

Nevertheless, action must be taken against the incident, the ZHAW criminologist demands: “It should be made clear to the perpetrators that the behavior is punishable.” This is the only way to prevent further spread of needle spiking.
