We have obtained a rotating black hole solution in the braneworld scenario by applying the Newman-Janis algorithm. The new solution carries two types of charge, one arising from the bulk Weyl tensor and one from the gauge field trapped on the brane. In order to obtain this result, we used a modified version of the algorithm in which the involved complexification is the key point. The analysis of the horizon structure of the new metric shows similarities to the Kerr-Newman solution. In particular, there is a minimal mass to which the black hole can decay through the Hawking radiation. From the thermodynamical analysis, the possibility of a degenerate horizon gives a temperature that, instead of a divergent behaviour at short scales, admits both a minimum and a maximum before cooling down towards a zero temperature remnant configuration.
