Police are investigating after a 23-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted in a portable toilet during Sunday night’s Foo Fighters concert at Wrigley Field. No one is in custody.

Police said the woman was standing in line to get food around 9:30 p.m. when a man she did not know groped her. The woman got out of line and went into a nearby port-a-potty along Sheffield Avenue. But, police said, the man followed her and entered the toilet before she could lock the door. The man then proceeded to sexually assault her.

Rows of toilets have been set up outside of the stadium to accommodate crowds at summer concerts. The attack took place in a group of toilets placed outside the stadium’s east wall, according to a police source.

The offender is a balding white man between 40- and 50-years-old who stands about 5’9” tall, police said.
