Oct 17, 2013 | 5:56am EDT

A private prosecution of rapper A$Ap Rocky over allegations he struck a female fan while performing at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in August (13) has stalled. A young mum, Lisa Wade, filed a private criminal complaint with the city's District Attorney's Office last month (Sep13), stating the hip-hop star had struck her while making his way through the crowd. However, as the incident was not witnessed by police and was regarded as a misdemeanour, Wade was ordered to file a private criminal complaint, meaning she had to provide contact details for the alleged assailant. According to editors at, paperwork was sent to the rapper's record company but was returned without a signature as the star was absent. It has now emerged the case will not be able to progress unless Wade can provide a contact address for the rap star.
