    Singer Chris Brown has denied any allegations that a sexual assault occurred.

    The lawyer for a woman who filed a rape complaint in Paris against American singer Chris Brown and two other men says she was raped four times during a drug-fueled party.

    Police questioned Brown and the others before releasing them from custody without charges Tuesday. The Paris prosecutor's office says the investigation hasn't been closed.

    Lawyer Franck Serfati told The Associated Press on Thursday the woman alleges she was forced to take cocaine and raped by the three men at a Paris hotel.

    Brown's legal representative in France, Raphael Chiche, didn't immediately respond to several calls and messages seeking comment.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Chiche tweeted Wednesday he was preparing a defamation complaint that "#ChrisBrown will file against his accuser."

    The Associated Press identifies people making sexual assault allegations who agree to be named. Serfati's client requested anonymity.
