Beleaguered singer-songwriter Justin Bieber has been accused in an attempted robbery in the Los Angeles area, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Tuesday night.
The alleged victim reported the incident to police Monday at about 10:30 p.m. West Coast time, and that alleged victim was being interviewed by police late Tuesday evening, Officer Rosario Herrera told USA TODAY.
Bieber, 20, had not been questioned by police or arrested as of late Tuesday, Herrera said.
No details were available as to whether the alleged incident took place at a home, business or some other site, but it did take place in the police agency’s Devonshire district in the San Fernando Valley, Herrera said.
Herrera said she did not believe the alleged victim had been hurt in the incident.
It was not clear what sorts of items might have been sought in the incident, Herrera said.
The Canadian-born Bieber has been involved in a string of brushes with the law and incidents that have caused fans to distance themselves from him.
He was first arrested in January 2014 in Miami on charges of driving under the influence and with an expired license.
On Mother’s Day, during a Los Angeles Clippers game that he attended with his mother, Pattie Mallette, the audience at the Staples Center booed when his face appeared on the Jumbotron screen.
