Officers responded to a woman’s call for help at Brown’s suburban residence, an LAPD spokesman said.
Officers obtained a search warrant Tuesday afternoon.
No arrests have been made, according to Lt. Chris Ramirez with the LAPD. Brown is at his residence with his attorney Mark Geragos, police told CNN. A large police presence could be seen outside Brown’s home on aerial footage from CNN affiliates Tuesday.
Brown, 27, posted three videos to his social media accounts earlier Tuesday.
Brown was put on probation for five years in 2009 after pleading guilty to one count of felony assault over an attack on then girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown’s representatives did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment on this story.
