Mos DefLas Vegas police are seeking rapper Mos Def for allegedly attacking a photographer during a fashion event in August reports TMZ.

The celebrity site reports that the rapper (real name: Dante Terrell) could face felony robbery and malicious destruction of private property charges for the incident.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Photographer Volker Corell, who was snapping photos for the MAGIC fashion convention -- that takes place twice a year in Sin City -- claims Mos Def became angry while he was snapping photos of him and other attendees, ripping his camera off his neck, smashing it on the ground, and fled with the damaged camera equipment.

During the attack, the photog claims he suffered a cut on his left hand, and also says he didn't even know who Mos Def was until after the incident.
