SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - The Chattahoochee Hills police department is looking into a possible sexual assault at the TomorrowWorld Music Festival, Channel 2's Tom Regan has learned.
The investigation comes after a weekend of problems caused by rain.
The problems really blew up overnight Saturday when TomorrowWorld stopped running shuttle buses, stranding many people.
On Sunday, organizers announced the last day of the festival would only be accessible to visitors already camping at DreamVille
Channel 2 talked with one festival goer who said there were thousands sleeping on the sides of roads, hiking for miles, left in the middle of
nowhere without no food, water, shelter and many not properly dressed or equipped to spend the night outside in cold, wet conditions.
Some traveled from another state to attend TomorrowWorld, but were kept out of the event.
Karmen Respicio and Kendele Chapman drove to Atlanta from Chattanooga, Tennessee.
"We spent a thousand dollars to get here and drove two and a half hours," Chapman said.
"We drive back to Miami, or find somewhere else to party in Atlanta since we're up here, but it's not what we came for," Richard Jackson said.
"We came for the music. That's all we really came for."
"We're here just for tonight and trying to get a refund because nothing we can do go home," Cana Noel said.
"They're charging $500 per person, how could they not accommodate the people's needs," Respicio said. "I wouldn't spend my money on this again."
