JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. – Authorities are searching for a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a bathroom at Red Rocks Amphitheatre during a "Film on the Rocks" movie this week, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

The woman reported that the assault happened between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tuesday in a restroom in the lower portion of the north side of the venue. She was able to get away from the man when more people entered the restroom.

The woman described the man as being 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall, with dark hair, blue eyes, a stocky build and a tribal flower tattoo on his right forearm, according to the sheriff's office. He was wearing a dark-color shirt and possibly jeans during the attack.

Anyone with more information about the incident or the suspect is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Tip Line at 303-271-5612 or Denver Metro Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

Red Rocks hosts "Film on the Rocks" every few weeks during the summer. Tuesday's event was the first one this year.
