Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was attacked by someone who threw powdered sugar at him outside the Hollywood set of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Levine was signing autographs outside the studio after recording a segment for Kimmel's show when a man threw a bag of powered sugar at him, catching him across the face and body, according to images and video from the scene.

"The Voice" coach quickly backed away while security grabbed the man and brought him to the ground.

The suspect has not yet been publicly identified. However, The Hollywood Reporter says the same individual is accused of throwing a rock at Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Maroon 5 has a song called "Sugar."

Entertainment Tonight says the suspect currently has five victims pressing battery charges against him, including Levine. ABC 7 in Los Angeles described the assailant as a man in his 30s.

One video shows Levine after the attack, with his powder-covered sweater removed, and the cuffed suspect being led away:
