According to Pasadena police, Roberto Alcaraz-Garnica sexually assaulted a woman in her 20s while attending the concert. A fight ensued after the woman's boyfriend confronted Alcaraz-Garnica, who "bit the victim, causing serious injury to his finger." Pasadena police Lt. John Luna said the boyfriend "lost the tip of one of his fingers."

Alcaraz-Garnica was arrested at about 10 p.m. on suspicion of sexual battery and mayhem and held on $100,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.

Also on Saturday, police arrested eight concertgoers for public drunkenness and two people for scalping.

Representatives for Jay Z and Beyonce have not commented on the spate of arrests at the concert, which drew an estimated 55,000 fans to the historic stadium for the couple's On the Run tour. A second Rose Bowl concert was set for Sunday night.
