Justin Bieber is at the center of the LAPD’s investigation of an attempted robbery that allegedly happened Monday night (May 12).
According to a breaking news tweet from LA’s KCBS KCAL, the attempted robbery occurred Monday night at around 10 p.m. and while Bieber has been named a suspect, he has neither been arrested nor has he been questioned yet.
TMZ has the details on the so-called “attempted robbery” via the woman from San Fernando Valley who brought on the investigation:
The woman tells TMZ … Monday night she was at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park — a complex with miniature golf and a batting cage — when she spotted Justin and his entourage playing a little mini golf and then hitting balls.
The woman says Justin and his crew got into an altercation with some guys at the batting cage when J.B. noticed she was going for her cellphone to take pictures. She says Justin demanded to see her phone so he could erase any photos. She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed the it.
The woman says she began wrestling with Bieber, trying to get her phone back. She says he ripped it out of her hands but couldn’t accomplish his mission because the phone was locked.
She says Justin gave her the phone back and demanded that she unlock it to see if she took photos. She obliged and showed Justin she had taken none. She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.” Her daughter started crying.
She says at that point Justin turned and started screaming at someone else.
The woman eventually filed a complaint with the LAPD and cops went to her home Tuesday night to take a report to decide whether or not a crime took place.
