CHICAGO — A woman was sexually assaulted at a Foo Fighters concert at Wrigley Field on Sunday night.

According to the Chicago Police Department, the 23-year-old woman was standing in line for food about 9:30 p.m. Sunday when a man groped her. The woman left the line to use a portable toilet. Before the woman could lock the door, police said, the man followed her inside and sexually assaulted her.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the attacker grabbed the woman by her neck and hit her head against the wall of the portable toilet. She was later taken to a local hospital.

Rows of portable toilets are often set up to accommodate crowds at summer concerts.

Police seized the portable toilet as evidence, the Tribune reported, and detectives are reviewing video.

In a statement, Chicago Cubs spokesman Julian Green said: "Moving forward, we will add security staff in the portable restroom area to have a fixed visual presence during concerts."

He also said: "We were notified of an assault of a female guest and immediately contacted Chicago Police during last night’s event at Wrigley Field. 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."

Police provided only a vague description of the attacker.

No one was in custody.
