CHICAGO — A woman was sexually assaulted outside Wrigley Field during Sunday night’s Foo Fighters concert.

At 9:30 p.m. Sunday, the woman was standing in line for food when a man groped her, said Officer Jennifer Bryk, a Chicago Police spokeswoman. The woman got out of the food line and went to a portable toilet in the 1000 block of West Addison Street.

A man followed the woman into the toilet before she could lock it. He then sexually assaulted the woman, Bryk said.

The woman was taken to a local hospital. Her condition was not immediately available.

The attacker was described as a white man who was 40-50 years old and 5-foot-9, Bryk said. He was balding and had brown hair.

No one was in custody, police said.

Cubs spokesman Julian Green said the team is helping police.

“We were notified of an assault of a female guest and immediately contacted Chicago Police during last night’s event at Wrigley Field,” Green said. “We are using every available resource to help authorities identify and apprehend the suspect and are working with CPD to address the matter quickly. We are encouraging anyone who may have information to please contact police.”

The attack was first reported by CWB Chicago.
