Chicago Tribune ( has issued the following report from Dan P. Blake:

Tinley Park police today are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman in a field outside the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre during the OZZFest music festival over the weekend.

A shirtless man, described as about 30, approached the 20-year-old victim as she was leaving the festival after 8 PM Sunday on the far west end of an unused parking lot at the outdoor venue at 191st and Ridgeland Avenue, said Tinley Park police Cmdr. Phil Valois.

"She had a chance encounter with the subject, they talked for awhile and at some point he grabbed her and assaulted her in a grassy area of the parking lot," Valois said.

There have been no witness reports of the attack, and Valois said it was unlikely the attack was seen or heard by anyone. The woman, an Indiana resident, reported the assault to the theater's staff 10 minutes later.

The attacker was described as about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium, muscular build, short blond hair and no facial hair. Tinley Park police plan on releasing a composite sketch of the man sometime Wednesday.

Valois said that four years ago a sexual assault was reported outside the venue, but police do not believe that it, or any other attacks in the southwest suburb over the past few years are related to Sunday's.

Anyone with information about the crime was asked to contact Tinley Park police at (708)-444-5342.
