Chris Brown: American singer accused of hitting woman in Los Angeles

American singer Chris Brown has been accused of hitting a woman after a row in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old is alleged to have struck the woman on Friday 18 June.

Officers were called to an area in the San Fernando Valley, southern California, at 7.30am local time, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department said.

A crime report has been completed and LA city’s attorney’s office will now consider whether to bring any charges.

The US singer wasn’t present when police arrived at the scene, the spokesman said.

“The victim advised that she and the suspect argued and the suspect struck her,” he added.

The Grammy-winning artist has a history of assault. He earlier received five years probation and a community service order for assaulting his then girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009.

In 2017, another former girlfriend, actress and model Karrueche Tran was granted a five-year restraining order against him.
