CHICAGO (CBS) — A 29-year-old Wicker Park resident would like to find the man who has complicated his life for the next four months, after a complete stranger bit his arm and attacked a friend at Lollapalooza.
Ben Lenet was watching the Arctic Monkeys on stage with two friends at about 9:30 p.m. Friday, when a man in the crowd attacked one of his friends.
Lenet said he tried to pull the man off, and that’s when the man bit him hard, drawing blood.
“And fully locked his jaw into my left forearm,” he said.
Lenet said he and his friends started hitting the man to get him off, but when he finally let go, he tried to bite the first man he attacked, and one of Lenet’s friends kicked the man in the face.
The man got up and walked away as if nothing had happened.
“In describing it to the police later, they said ‘We never see cases like that where the attacker isn’t on PCP, or bath salts, or something like that,” Lenet said. “There’s no way a normal person could have sustained that much punishment, and just walked away.”
