PARIS (AP) — A French prosecutor says Moroccan singer Saad Lamjarred has been charged with rape after he was arrested in Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera.

The Draguignan prosecutor's office said Lamjarred, 33, who was arrested Sunday, was released Tuesday night and placed under judicial control. Lamjarred has allegedly assaulted a woman, born in 1989, in a nightclub in Saint-Tropez. She has filed a complaint.

The Moroccan star was previously arrested in October 2016 for having assaulted a French woman in a luxury hotel on the Champs-Elysee Avenue in Paris. He was charged with aggravated rape and assault. That case has not been brought to trial yet.

Lamjarred is well known on the Arab pop music scene. King Mohammed VI awarded him Morocco's highest national honor in 2015.
