State Park Police pledged to put additional security measures in place following a sexual assault that occurred at the Drake and Lil’ Wayne concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center earlier this month.
Investigators said a woman was assaulted inside the venue after she became separated from her group at the concert. The incident remains under investigation, but authorities believe it to be an isolated incident.
As a precaution, park police are instituting additional security measures for the remaining events at SPAC this season. This includes increased park police patrols, event security through the concert promoter, and park staff who will serve as a visible presence.
