CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess) — Police in Chicago are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a woman at a Foo Fighters concert at Wrigley Field on Sunday.

According to the Chicago Tribune, police said the assault occurred about 9:30 p.m. when a man groped a woman waiting in a food line. She then left the line and walked to a port-a-potty, but was followed by the man who pushed his way inside before she could lock the door. Once inside, the assailant grabbed her by the neck and struck her head against the side of the port-a-potty.

She reported the incident to a nursing station, police were called and she was taken to a hospital by a private ambulance.

Police told the Tribune that the alleged assailant was described as white, 40 to 50 years old, 5-foot-9 with brown, thinning hair, and possibly a receding hairline. He is currently not in custody.

Police seized the port-a-potty as evidence and a spokesman for the Chicago Cubs said the organization is fully cooperating with investigators.

“We are using every available resource to help authorities identify and apprehend the suspect and are working with CPD to address the matter quickly,” Julian Green in an emailed statement to the Tribune. “We are encouraging anyone who may have information to please contact police.”

The team also announced plans to increase security at upcoming events.

“We are increasing security staff in the portable restroom area so we have a fixed visual presence to monitor guests going in and out of the restrooms,” Green added. “Guest safety is paramount at Wrigley Field and we take every opportunity to ensure our guests’ safety, including routinely reviewing our security protocols and procedures with police.”
