Chris Brown accused of hitting a woman in LA
The R&B star, 32, is alleged to have struck the woman on Friday 18 June.
A police spokesperson told NBC News that Brown is accused of hitting the unnamed woman during an argument. Officers had been called to a residence in the city’s San Fernando Valley area on Friday 18 June.
Brown has not been charged with an offence and has not commented on the allegations. Police said the case would be referred to the Los Angeles city attorney’s office.
Brown has frequently been accused of assaulting women. He served probation time and community service after pleading guilty to physically assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He later broke his probation in a separate incident, and in 2014 was sentenced to a year in prison.
In 2016, a woman alleged that he had threatened her with a gun, and another woman that year alleged he had punched her in a Las Vegas nightclub – Brown denied both incidents.
In 2017, another former girlfriend – actress and model Karrueche Tran – was granted a five-year restraining order against him.
