By the time the police officers arrived, Chris has split!

Although police declined to identify the alleged victim, sources tell E! News that the alleged victim was Rihanna, 20, and that she suffered visible bruises on her face during an early morning confrontation.

Brown, 19, turned himself in at the LAPD’s Wilshire station and was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats, a charge that carries a maximum penalty of four years. The case will now be sent to the district attorney’s office and further charges could be filed.
