A trans beauty queen has been arrested for drugging men she met online before robbing them with another trans woman.
Mikaelly Martinez, Miss Brasil Transsexual 2019, was arrested at Ipanema Beach in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro by the police on 28th November.
She is accused of making appointments with men she met online at hotels before drugging them and stealing their valuables.
The police have currently identified one victim but believe there are more yet to come forward who may have been too embarrassed to report the incident.
Police chief Leandro Gontijo said: “She used to drug men after attracting them to a sexual event or sometimes under the impression it was a sexual encounter.
“When she arrived at the hotel, another trans suspect appeared who promised to take part in a threesome.
“The man was offered a drink and a drug was put in the glass. He then had his belongings stolen.”
The police suspect the trans beauty queen also committed the same modus operandi in the cities of Sao Paulo, Florianopolis, and Balneario Camboriu.
Gontijo said: “It is important to emphasise that, if there are other victims, because they exist but people are too ashamed to register a complaint, that they can contact us at the 16th Precinct.”
The news site G1 said Martinez was arrested for murder in January 2015.
The investigation continues.
