Justin Bieber

LAPD Investigates

Alleged Attempted Robbery

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber Robbery
Justin Bieber allegedly committed an attempted robbery ... so claims a San Fernando Valley woman, and TMZ has learned the LAPD is now investigating.

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 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.

We reached out to Bieber's camp before posting this story ... so far, no word back. 

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. 

TMZ obtained a photo (above) of Justin with a Castle Park security guard who was trying to calm the situation.  

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the woman lodged a complaint and LAPD cops went to her home Tuesday night to take a report to determine if a crime occurred.

In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous.

TMZ was so excited to be the first to post this story, that they made a careless mistake by choosing not to review and correct any minor possible errors - and ignore spellcheck for that matter. Like I said before, a bunch of high school dropouts in charge of these irrelevant pointless stories. " She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed the it." -huh?

It's official, I'm joining the I Hate Justin Bieber crowd. When you start assaulting women, demanding and strong-arming them, you have gone WAY too far.

Get the negative comments going. If TMZ says it's so it must be true. It's not like their job is to stir the pot now is it?
Same goes for the women. If she says it happened it must be true. People never make false report looking for an easy pay day. That type of thing only happens in the movies
So why bother waiting to hear another side to the story of for a police report or possible trial.
We all read it here at TMZ
