Casanova is officially charged in the alleged assault case from August's diner incident.
It looks like Casanova is officially being charged & indicted for his alleged part in the brutal beating of a woman in a NYC diner this Summer.
Back in August, a woman named Niya Rucker claimed that she was attacked by the NYC rapper and an accomplice after they thought she was recording video of them while eating at the Good Stuff Diner in NYC. Casanova eventually turned himself into authorities shortly after a warrant was issued, but his legal team claimed the woman fabricated the story to the media for financial gain.
Ms. Rucker says she sustained a broken jaw, a tooth knocked out and stitches in the fracas. Furthermore, she stated on record that she was never even trying to record Casanova, but was just taking pictures of her meal apparently.
Well on Wednesday, the Roc Nation rapper was indicted on charges of robbery and coercion. His alleged accomplice, Bobby Williams, was charged with strangulation as well. According to the indictment by the NY District Attorney, Casanova allegedly “forcibly stole property” and then instilled fear in the victim. Casanova maintains his innocence however.
