No Chris Brown, Rihanna or Karrueche Tran at LA Home - Another Swatting Prank

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran.

Chris Brown wasn't at home when police came calling this week.

Brown's on and off girlfriends, Rihanna and Karrueche Tran weren't in the house either when police responded to a hoax 911 call.

Breezy was the victim of another Los Angeles swatting prank, a 911 call claimed domestic violence but Rihanna, Chris and Karrueche were away, not even in the house.

Police officers swarmed the 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer's home at around 5 pm on Monday (Jan. 21, 2013) after an anonymous call was made to 911, claiming there was a domestic violence disturbance at his house.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the caller said a mother and father were in a fight and the father had gone to get a gun, before hanging up. They did not mention it was Chris Brown's house.

However, when police arrived, they found no evidence of a gunman or a dispute at Chris' $1.6 million home.

Website TMZ claims the 23-year-old star was not at the property at the time, but members of his staff were.

Chris' parents arrived shortly after officers had started searching the home.

Chris was spotted at Greystone Manor Supper Club in Los Angeles last night. His on/off girlfriend Rihanna was also there, but they left in separate cars.

Chris is the latest in a number of celebrities to fall victim of a 'swatting' prank, following a similar incident at Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills home last Thursday (17.01.13) when a prank caller claimed an armed robbery was taking place, but officers found no crime had been committed.

A 12-year-old child also previously targeted Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber's homes in a series of elaborate prank burglaries.

Kim Kardashian was left furious after her mother Kris Jenner, stepfather Bruce Jenner and step-sisters Kendall and Kylie also became victims of a 'swatting' incident last Friday (18.01.13) that saw heavily armed officers show up at their door in Calabasas, California, after a hoax caller claimed a shooter was in the house and they heard a gun being fired.

Kim tweeted: ''Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home and 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up! (sic)

''These prank calls are NOT funny. People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out how is behind this. It's dangerous & not a joke! (sic)''
