Rapper Blueface is facing new legal woes, following another arrest in Las Vegas.

Blueface — whose real name is Johnathan Jamall Porter — was arrested in November 2022 by Las Vegas Metro Police and charged with attempted murder as well as a number of other crimes, but was later released on bail for $50,000, per KLAS-TV.

As he entered a Las Vegas courthouse for a preliminary hearing on those charges Wednesday morning, Blueface was arrested by police on a separate charge of robbery, his attorneys Lisa Rasmussen and Kristina Wildeveld confirmed to the outlet.

“We do not have any information about the new case but we are told that this involves taking a cell phone from a woman at the Palms casino,” they told KLAS-TV. “We look forward to defending him in court in both of these cases.”

Court records show that the robbery report was filed on Wednesday, but did not give any other details on the case. Blueface has not yet been formally charged in connection with the arrest, according to a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and Blueface’s attorneys did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

On Oct. 8, 2022, the "Thotiana" rapper, 26, allegedly shot a man, which led to him being booked for attempted murder, use of a deadly weapon and discharging a gun into an occupied structure, vehicle, or craft, on Nov. 15, according to a police report.

He was also booked for operating an unregistered vehicle, trailer, or semi, per the report.

Wack 100, Blueface's manager, told Rolling Stone in November that Blueface's then girlfriend Chrisean Rock was also present during the arrest.
