Pop singer Justin Bieber has been accused of attempted robbery, a Los Angeles Police Department official has said, following media reports that he had tried to snatch a young woman’s cellphone.

Bieber (20) has not been arrested or questioned, said police spokesperson Rosario Herrera. A spokesperson for Bieber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Detectives have interviewed the victim, who reported the alleged crime, Herrera said. The incident occurred at about 10:30pm on Monday in the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles.

The incident was reported to police yesterday. No other information was available.

The Canadian singer is due to stand trial in July in Miami on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license.

In February, Bieber was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto.
