Police are looking for a man who they say assaulted a teen at the Made In America festival over Labor Day weekend.
The suspect and victim were attending the festival at about 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 4 and where in the general admission area near the 2600 block of Benjamin Franklin Parkway when the incident happened, police said.
According to officials, the suspect grabbed the 19-year-old woman’s right arm and bit her on the forearm causing broken skin and bruising.
The victim says she does not know the man who allegedly assaulted her and had no prior contact with him. She was treated at the concert medical tent for her injuries.
A nearby concert-goer was able to take photos of the suspect with her cellphone. Police describe him as black, early to mid 30s, and wearing a pink button down shirt and black/white/gray “True Religion” hat. He also appears to have a crown tattoo on his chest.
An alleged sexual assault on the same night was also reported to have happened at the music festival. According to reports, a 16-year-old girl said she was watching a performer on stage around 9 p.m. when a man walked up behind her, pulled down her jean shorts and sexually assaulted her. The suspect fled once the girl screamed.
The Special Victims Unit is reportedly investigating the incident.
