A 19-year-old man is behind bars after police say he sexually assaulted a 49-year-old woman after she fell asleep in the grass at a concert at Jiffy Lube Live last weekend.

According to investigators, the incident happened Sunday night during the Zac Brown Band concert at the venue in Bristow, Va.  The victim woke up and found the man—whom she didn’t know—lying beside her and touching her inappropriately.

Prince William County police say the suspect, Benjamin Chisolm of Davidsonville, Md., walked away from the victim, and was eventually detained by police for public intoxication.  He was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual battery.

Chisolm is being held without bond, and he is scheduled to appear in court on July 17.

Chisolm is a lacrosse player at the University of Maryland. As a freshman this past season, he scored two goals. He played high school at South River and was an all-state player.
