LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Las Vegas police are still waiting for a formal statement from O.J. Simpson as they continue an armed robbery investigation.

Simpson is said to be waiting to talk with his lawyers who have not yet arrived in the city, so there may not be a formal statement until Monday.

It's the latest legal problem for the former NFL star who says he can't understand why he is a focus of the probe. He says he was just trying to recover some stolen mementos and that there were no weapons involved and no one was roughed up.

Police are also looking for three or four men who accompanied Simpson into a room an an off-strip casino-hotel the night of the alleged incident.

No charges have been filed and no one is in custody.
