Los Angeles - Authorities say officers responded to singer Chris Brown's Los Angeles home after a woman called police seeking assistance.

Police Lieutenant Chris Ramirez told reporters that the call came early on Tuesday from outside the residence in the Tarzana neighbourhood.

Ramirez didn't say what assistance the woman needed. He says detectives hope to talk to Brown, the woman, and any witnesses.

Officer Lyle Knight tells The Associated Press that police are waiting for a judge to approve a search warrant for the home in the San Fernando Valley area.

Multiple police vehicles are parked at the scene.

Calls to representatives for Brown were not immediately returned.

The Grammy-winning singer has had multiple run-ins with law enforcement. He spent six years on probation after pleading guilty to attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
