Las Vegas - Police in Las Vegas are investigating an allegation of battery against R&B singer Chris Brown.

Lieutenant Jeff Goodwin said authorities received a call shortly before 10:30 on Saturday about the alleged battery at the Palms Casino Resort.

A police statement on Saturday evening said an altercation took place in a room at the resort when the victim went to take a picture of Brown.

Police say the victim said she was struck by Brown and that he had taken her cellphone. Detectives tried to speak with Brown at his hotel room, but the singer left before police had arrived.

Police say a crime report has been taken for misdemeanour theft and misdemeanour battery listing Brown as a suspect.

Nicole Perna, publicist for Brown, issued a statement on Saturday night calling the victim's charges "unequivocally untrue".

The singer performed on Friday at Drai's nightclub at The Cromwell Las Vegas, where he appears regularly.
