Swedish prosecutors say rapper A$AP Rocky has been detained for a suspected attack on an unknown person in downtown Stockholm.   

The Swedish Prosecution Authority says the investigation was “at an initial stage” and should be decided by midday Saturday, whether A$AP Rocky -- real name Rakim Mayers -- should be formally arrested. His three body guards are suspected of lesser degrees of assault under Swedish law.   

In a statement, the authority said the four were detained Wednesday because they would leave the country and avoid prosecution. No further information was available.
