LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials at the Treasure Island hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip say they and Bill Cosby have mutually agreed to cancel the comedian’s upcoming performance amid a growing number of sexual assault allegations.

The cancellation was announced Friday, a day after a Florida woman said Cosby drugged and raped her after a 1976 Las Vegas show. She’s the fourth woman to recently make similar allegations.

Treasure Island spokeswoman Michelle Knoll said “it wasn’t a good time” for the Nov. 28 performance.

In Reno, Silver Legacy Resort Casino spokeswoman Sara Robbins says Cosby’s Valentine’s Day show is postponed indefinitely. She wouldn’t say who made that decision.

Ticketholders for both shows will be given refunds.

Cosby issued a statement Sunday discrediting decades-old accusations and his attorney has denied four of the allegations.
