Police in the US are investigating Justin Bieber after he was accused of throwing eggs at a neighbour's house.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says the singer has been named as a suspect in a crime report of vandalism and assault.

The 19-year-old is accused of egging the house in LA while his neighbour and neighbour's daughter were on the balcony and videotaping the episode.

Mr Whitmore also said the pop star won't speak to police.

"Mr Bieber doesn't tend to ever want to talk to us. When we knock on the door, he doesn't answer," he said.

"Once again, which I have done numerous times, I encourage Mr. Bieber, whether it be with an attorney or not, to come and talk to us," Mr Whitmore added.

At the moment the claims in the report are counted as misdemeanours, however depending on the estimate of the damages, that could rise to a more serious felony.

In October 2013, prosecutors decided not to charge Justin Bieber after a neighbour complained he drove recklessly through the area.

Police also said they wanted to speak to him in March 2013, after he was accused of being involved in a row with a neighbour.
