    The rapper "Big Sean" is facing charges in upstate New York after a woman complained that she was sexually abused during a concert.

    State Park Police charged the 23-year-old Detroit man, whose full name is Sean Anderson, with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse. A second Detroit man, Willie Hansbro, faces the same charges.

    Police got the complaint about 9:50 p.m. Thursday at Artpark State Park, where Anderson was performing with Wiz Khalifa.

    Authorities refused to detail what happened.

    Both men were issued appearance tickets and released on $500 bail. They're scheduled in Niagara County Court in the town of Lewiston on Sept. 6.

    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.
