It was semen! Police confirms free yogurt sample given to woman in shop was a bit iffy
Our worst fears have come true as the woman who two weeks ago suspected she had tasted semen in a yogurt sample given to her in her local supermarket has been told it was indeed semen she tasted.
The not-so-innocent yogurt sample was given to her by the 31-year-old grocery clerk Anthony Garcia in New Mexico.
The yogurt has now been confirmed as testing positive for “sperm cells” and saliva, and police are now seeking blood and DNA samples from Anthony Garcia, the 31-year-old suspect.
According to a police report, the 28-year-old victim was shopping with her daughter in the store’s cereal aisle when she was approached by Garcia, who worked in the store’s dairy department. After accepting Garcia’s offer of a yogurt sample, the woman immediately thought the sample tasted “gross and disgusting” and, told police that "it tasted like ‘semen.’”
In a handwritten statement, the woman said, “I spit it out on the floor many times beacuse I was upset.” The woman recalled that when she talked to manager Catherine Flores, “she told me was a Greek yoghurt. People love it has lot of protein on it.”
The woman paid for her groceries and returned home, where she told her boyfriend about the incident. She told of how Garcia had “just come with one sample just for me,” and that “he was so pushy to tell me how taste it.” The woman and her boyfriend eventually returned to the market, where they called the police.
An Albuquerque Police Department spokesperson said today that blood and DNA samples have been collected from the incarcerated Garcia, and that results from lab tests are expected later this week.
