San Francisco police are investigating instances where three women reported being attacked during the Outside Lands music festival over the weekend.

According to police, the women say they might have been drugged before being assaulted; however, police do not believe the three attacks are related, and here's why:

Police said the three assaults occurred at different locations, and the descriptions of the men in each case not the same.

Police tells us they have conducted forensic tests and are awaiting the results to determine whether the women were in fact drugged. Meanwhile, they are asking any of you Outside Landers who might have seen these attacks or have any information about them to please contact the San Francisco Police Department's anonymous tip line at 575-4444, or Text-A-Tip to TIP411.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
