“The victim advised that she and the suspect argued and the suspect struck her,” police said.

Brown was not present when police arrived, the spokesman said, adding a crime report for battery was completed.

It will be handed the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office who will consider if any charges need to be brought, the spokesman said.

Representatives for Brown have been contacted for comment.

Grammy-winning performer Brown has previously found himself in trouble with authorities.

In 2009 he was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, and later pleaded guilty to felony assault and completed probation in 2015.

In 2017’s another former girlfriend – the actress and model Karrueche Tran – was granted a five-year restraining order against Brown.
