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.

I know everyone hates JB but this woman sounds like a total busy body and what she described sounds nothing like a robbery.

I'm sure she was not just innocently standing there but trying to take some photos that she could sell to TMZ.

He's been under the Leo ( law enforcement ) radar for how long??? He has a good legal team. I'm sure they are well aware of what they are dealing with ( celebrity BS). The legal team will keep working their $$$ magic. But we've all seen the outcome lately... Justin's road that he's on will wear out eventually and end in the typical child prodigy gone bad

I can't believe the negative things people are saying! I'm sure mist of you weren't perfect growing up! I wasn't but you would not know that because people don't follow me around w a camera all day creating gossip! He's a young man entitled to mistakes that's part of life! Live n learn! As far as wanting the pics erased I agree w him .! He was probably hoping to solve this before people were given more to talk about! Give him a break! If you can look in your past n have no regrets or bad designs the. You should be able to give advice !
