LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police detectives are investigating allegations that embattled singer Justin Bieber tried to steal a cellphone at a family entertainment center.

Police spokeswoman Rosario Herrera said Wednesday that a person accused Bieber of trying to take the phone Monday night at the facility that features miniature golf, arcades and batting cages in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood.

Police didn’t give any other details. Herrera says detectives from the agency’s elite Robbery Homicide Division are investigating the allegations.

Phone and email messages left with Bieber’s attorney, Howard Weitzman, and publicist, Melissa Victor, weren’t immediately returned.

Prosecutors are still considering whether to file charges against Bieber over an egg-throwing incident in January that damaged a neighbor’s home in Calabasas.
