A woman woke up nude and violated in a strange hotel room in Rosemead, and now a 27-year-old suspect who cops say offered to pay her to shut up about it was being held behind bars in lieu of $100,000 for alleged rape-by-drug/intoxicant and possession of narcotics.

Over the weekend sheriff's investigators announced that Ming He of Monterey Park was being held after he allegedly admitted to giving the woman the date-rape drug Ketamine (a.k.a. "K" or "Special K") and taking her to the hotel to have sex with her.

Sheriff's officials said the woman called them Thursday and reported what allegedly happened:

A guy drugged her after meeting her at an undisclosed L.A. club.

According to a sheriff's statement:

She told deputies that she remembered going to a night club in Los Angeles, the night before, with a co-worker but she did not recall anything after that. She felt that she had been raped.

Deputies checked out surveillance video at the hotel and sure enough, they claim, He was seen "carrying the nearly unconscious victim into a room" and later leaving "the room by himself."

The suspect then subsequently called the woman, "admitted that he had drugged her with Katamine [sic]" and that he had sex with her, and then arranged a meet-up Friday whereby he would pay her to "go away alone for several weeks until things settled down," according to allegations in the sheriff's statement.

So, of course, you can guess who showed up for the meeting at a business park in Monterey Park near Garfield and Garvey avenues. That's right, the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department. Actually it was the LASD's Asian Gang Team, to be precise. (They're not yet clear if He is a reputed gangster, however, sheriff's officials said).

And do you know what this genius allegedly had on him when they collared him?

Ketamine.

[Added]: Sheriff's Sgt. Steve Kim told the Weekly the pair's original encounter happened at a "warehouse"-type club in Hollywood but he said he couldn't recall the name of it.
