New York rapper Casanova 2x is now in police custody. New reports claim the hip-hop artist turned himself in Wednesday (August 15) following reports of his involvement in an alleged altercation.
According to reports, police have officially charged Casanova with felony second-degree robbery.
Casanova just turned himself in to police after catching wind that he was a wanted man — this after he allegedly attacked a woman in brutal fashion for using her phone. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the “Set Trippin” rapper surrendered to the NYPD in Manhattan Wednesday morning and criminal charges against him are pending. Casanova’s attorney told us his client adamantly denied the allegation. (TMZ)
A few days ago, Nova appeared to downplay claims of assaulting a woman with a social media post.
Last weekend, reports emerged about Casa having police after him over an alleged restaurant assault.
Law enforcement sources tell us … a warrant was issued for the arrest of the “Set Trippin” rapper late Friday night. The alleged victim, Niya Rucker, claims she was attacked by Casanova and his crew at Good Stuff Diner around 4:40 AM last week. We’re told Casanova thought Rucker was filming him with her phone and became enraged, and an attempt to stop her and take her phone turned violent. Law enforcement says Casanova and an accomplice assaulted Rucker — leaving her with a possible fracture in her jaw and a facial laceration requiring 4 stitches — and one of them put her in a sleeper hold.

Recently, the victim Niya Rucker came forward to speak out on what allegedly happened.
