SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Bill Cosby's stand-up tour is making a stop in northern Ohio, where police say they will have extra officers on hand for the show.

Police in Sandusky expect at least a few protesters outside the theater where Cosby will perform Friday night.

The 77-year-old comedian is facing sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women, with some of the claims dating back decades. He has denied the allegations through his attorney and has never been charged with a crime.

Cosby's performances in other states have drawn protests, and a few shows have been canceled.

The show in Sandusky was booked months before the controversy began.
