A$AP Rocky’s Sweden assault continues to unfold.
On Friday (July 12), the rapper’s longtime manager, John Ehmann, has his hotel room raided after he was served a search warrant in Stockholm, according to Fox News.
Just before 8 a.m. local time, it was reported that Ehmann was awakened by four Swedish police officers who claimed they had a search warrant.
During the raid, the officers allegedly seized the manager’s cellphone and asked for his passcode so they could examine the contents.
According to a source, Ehmann “was completely taken back” by the raid and “had no idea what this was about.”
It was mentioned by someone in Rocky’s camp that it could be retaliation for the #JusticeForRocky online petition, which has garnered over 575,000 signatures.
The RAP-UP reported that the Swedish Prosecution Authority launched a preliminary investigation into the Swedish men who harassed and attacked Rocky during the street brawl in Stockholm.
The Swedish men are suspects to molestation and assault.
The rapper is scheduled to be held until July 19 at the latest.
The prosecution then must decide whether to drop the case or request a longer detention period in order to finalize an investigation.
