NYPD Investigates Assault at Jay-Z's 'TIDAL X' Charity Event, Security Guard Bloodied

By TheBlast Staff

Two people were booted from Jay-Z's Tidal X charity event Tuesday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center after an alleged assault left a security guard with a bloody forehead.

The NYPD tells The Blast, “A complaint report for an assault was made inside 620 Atlantic Avenue last night. Security ejected 2 people from the stadium when one of them punched the security guard causing a laceration to his forehead. That suspect fled on foot. The victim was taken to Lutheran Hospital by EMS in stable condition.”

We're told the 30-year-old security guard was at the top of a stairwell trying to eject the two concertgoers when he was punched in the head with a closed fist.

Cops say once the suspect is located, he will be arrested and charged with assault.

The charity event raised money for survivors of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria, and the Mexico earthquakes.

Big artists from Jay-Z's Roc Nation performed, including Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, and Vic Mensa.

Beyoncé showed up and slayed the red carpet, but did not perform.
