A lonely-hearted Queens man who was allegedly drugged then robbed by a woman who he met in a nightclub says he is now too scared to go out looking for love again.
“I don’t want to go out. I don’t want to meet people,” the 26-year-old — who spoke on the condition of anonymity — told The Post Tuesday.
The man said he isn’t good at picking up ladies and couldn’t believe his luck when a dark-haired beauty fell into his lap while he was out with friends at UpDown in Manhattan last month.
The pair met in the wee hours of May 22 at the West 14th St. hotspot — where police later obtained video that showed her slipping a pill into his drink shortly after 2:30 a.m., police and sources said.
“She knew how to make me feel comfortable. We spoke about what we do for a living and our plans for the summer,” he said.
He says he took the woman — who claimed to be a pharmaceutical company representative — back to his Beechhurst home about 3 a.m. and passed out shortly after.
When he woke up, his date, and his $11,000 Rolex Mariner, were gone.
“I woke up in the morning and she was gone with two watches and my wallet, my credit cards, my ID’s, everything. She went shopping at Bloomingdale’s the next day,” he said.
Cops said the slippery-fingered vixen racked up $4,849 in charges on the man’s credit card.
The guy said the second watch was of little value but the incident left him so shaken, he has since installed a front door camera at his Queens home.
“I don’t remember a lot of things because I was drugged,” he said. “It was definitely a struggle to think clearly… a struggle to make the right decisions.”
The Queens man is just the latest unlucky mark to be robbed after allegedly taking home a slippery-fingered seductress from a Big Apple club.
He is now warning other men, cautioning: “Please don’t leave your drink unattended. And just be careful.”
Law enforcement authorities told The Post in 2017 they believed around 100 ladies spend their nights going for gold in New York’s clubs.
“That’s what these women do — they prey on men in these types of clubs or hotel bars, what they look for is someone with expensive jewelry or watches, or someone spending a lot of money,” a police source said at the time.
Former Knick Derrick Williams was also robbed after taking home two women from UpDown in 2015.
The pair of pilferers made off with $617,000 worth of expensive jewelry and Louis Vuitton luggage after Williams took them back to his downtown Manhattan apartment.
