A 24-year-old woman claims that Brown raped her in his suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Brown and two other unidentified individuals are in custody for aggravated rape and drug charges at the time of writing.
According to the alleged victim's report, Brown met her at Paris nightclub Le Crystal. She left with him and a group of friends for the hotel, which is located near Concorde Plaza in central Paris. Police have two more days to investigate the matter, after which they must either release Brown or file preliminary charges.
