UPDATED: A Stockholm court on Friday ordered that US rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on assault allegations, should be kept in custody for another week while the prosecutor completes his investigation.
"The deadline to press charges has been extended to Thursday July 25th at 11 am (0900 GMT). The suspect will until then remain in detention," the district court said in a statement.
The 30-year-old artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was arrested on July 3rd shortly after midnight along with three other people following a street brawl in Stockholm on June 30th. On July 5th the Stockholm District Court ordered that he should be kept in custody while the case was being investigated, as he was considered a "flight risk".
