BOSTON (MANSFIELD POLICE/CNN) – Massachusetts police are investigating the alleged rape of a teen at a Keith Urban concert.

Authorities have named Sean Murphy, 18, as the suspect.

Police say it happened in front of a large crowd at an outdoor amphitheater where 20 people were reportedly so drunk, they had to be hospitalized.

The rape ended when a woman in the crowd pushed Murphy off of the victim, a 17-year-old.

He was later arrested and charged.

Murphy entered a plea of not guilty and was released on $10,000 bond. His lawyer says the act was consensual and not sexual assault.
