A London charity gig starring Will Smith, Xzibit, De La Soul, Faith Evans and Craig David turned sour on Saturday (16APR05) night when a teenage girl was raped.

The victim was attacked in a 'chill-out' room during the URBAN MUSIC FESTIVAL at the capital's Earls Court venue while 16,000 people watched the musicians perform.

Police at the event, organised by British royal Prince Charles' charity THE PRINCE'S TRUST, are seeking a suspect in his late teens.

A police spokesman says, "A 15-year-old girl has alleged to police that she was raped at the Urban Musical Festival at 9pm.

"The victim is being offered support and care and is being looked after by specially trained officers."
