Probe over claim R&B singer Chris Brown 'hit a woman'
Las Vegas police are investigating an allegation that a woman was attacked by R&B singer Chris Brown.
Police received a call shortly before 10.30am on Saturday about the alleged assault at the Palms Casino Resort. A police statement said an altercation took place in a room at the resort when the woman went to take a picture of Brown.
The woman claimed she was struck by Brown and that he had taken her phone. Detectives tried to speak with Brown at his hotel room, but the singer left before police had arrived.
Nicole Perna, publicist for Brown, issued a statement calling the woman's charges "unequivocally untrue".
