COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A Swedish prosecutor wants U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky held for another week in pre-trial detention to allow police to finish investigating a June 30 fight in downtown Stockholm.

Prosecutor Daniel Suneson has asked Stockholm's District Court to hold A$AP Rocky — the stage name of Rakim Mayers — until July 25. A ruling is expected later Friday.

Suneson says police "have worked intensively" with the preliminary investigation but can't comment further while the probe is ongoing.

On June 5, Mayers who was in Sweden to perform at a music festival, and his body guards were ordered held for two weeks. Videos published on social media, show a person being violently thrown onto the ground by Mayers. A defense lawyer has said it was self-defense.
