One man got much more than he bargained for during Arctic Monkeys‘ set at this year’s Lollapalooza.

The man took to Reddit yesterday (August 4) to detail his horrifying experience, which included being attacked and then bitten by another festival-goer. Biting unfortunately seems to be a theme at recent concerts. (See: Beyoncé and Jay Z’s Saturday night show at the Rose Bowl where a man’s finger was bitten off.)

The victim says he was watching the Arctic Monkeys at about 9:35 pm perfectly sober (“All subsequent police and medical professional even remarked how odd it was dealing with someone so sober,” he wrote) when a man, which he describes as being “between 5’7″ and 5’11,” dark skin (maybe Hispanic, but not black), 170-210 pounds” body slammed his friend and started choking him.

“I come from the other side and place my right arm on his right arm and my left arm on his right shoulder trying to pull him off,” he wrote. “The attacker then turns his head and clamps his teeth into my arm for a good 5 seconds. He’s not nipping at me. He’s trying to bite through my arm.”
