17-Year-Old Girl Raped on Lawn at Keith Urban Concert

At the same Keith Urban show where 20 people were hospitalized for being too drunk, a 17-year-old girl was raped on the lawn while everyone watched and took photos.

The attack happened in front of a large crowd of other concertgoers on the lawn of the Xfinity Center, an outdoor amphitheater in Mansfield, Massachusetts, on Saturday night, a police statement said.

The rape ended when a woman in the crowd pushed the alleged attacker off the victim and he fled, police said.

Sean Murphy, 18, was arrested “a short time later” and charged with rape, police said.

“Officers conducting the investigation were assisted by patrons that had been concerned and took photos and video of the assault on their cellular phones,” the Mansfield Police statement said. “Those phones are being processed to recover the digital evidence of the assault.”

Murphy’s lawyer claims the sex was consensual and that the woman was “neither intoxicated nor overcome by drugs at the time.” Because those are clearly the perquisites for claiming rape.

After the show on Saturday, Keith Urban posted a video on YouTube commenting on what he saw on the lawn from the stage. “Up on the lawn tonight, that was nutso. It was so cool,” he said.

I’m pretty sure one of Urban’s biggest regrets in life will be this. Accidentally calling an alleged rape “so cool.” Yikes. The only way he could have made this worse is if he gave the guy backstage passes and a high five.
