Court docs: Man from Canada accused of biting 14-year-old's breast at Green Day concert
PORTLAND, Ore. – A man from Canada is accused of biting a 14-year-old’s breast while at the Green Day concert at the Moda Center Wednesday, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The document says the girl and her mother reported the incident to a Portland police officer working the event.
The victim told the officer she and her mother were watching the concert together. She said her mother was on her left and the suspect was on her right, the court document says.
While she was dancing, the girl claims the suspect, later identified as Joel Dauncey, leaned over and bit her on the right breast, the affidavit says.
The girl told the officer the bite stung and hurt and she said she told her mother about the incident immediately, the document says.
An event worker said Dauncey had been cut off from purchasing alcohol earlier in the night and that workers were monitoring his behavior. The worker told police she saw him lean over and bite the girl on the breast, the affidavit says.
The worker reported she summoned security to pull Dauncey out of the arena.
The police officer spoke with Dauncey who said he knew why he was arrested. But, when asked to elaborate, he said he did not know why he was being arrested, the document says.
It says the officer mentioned the biting incident to Dauncey and he said he didn’t know what the officer was talking about. He denied biting the girl’s breast, the document says.
Dauncey was arrested on one count of third degree sex abuse and one count of harassing or annoying another person with offensive sexual contact.
Jail records show he’s from Vancouver, British Columbia.
