NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. —

Rapper Big Sean faces charges in upstate New York after a woman complained she was sexually assaulted during a concert.

State park police charged the 23-year-old Detroit rapper with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse. Another Detroit man, Willie Hansbro, faces the same charges.

Police received the complaint Thursday at Artpark State Park in Lewiston, downriver from Niagara Falls. Anderson was performing there with rapper Wiz Khalifa. Authorities won't elaborate on the complaint.

Big Sean and Hansbro were given Sept. 6 court dates for Niagara County Court and released on $500 bail.

Big Sean's real name is Sean Anderson. Scott Leemon, a lawyer for both men, said they "vehemently deny" the charges. He said he's confident they will be cleared after further investigation.
