Scary. Armed suspects invaded Chris Brown's home in Tarzana, Calif., early Wednesday, July 15, and locked the singer's aunt in a closet, police confirm to Us Weekly.

According to authorities, Brown's aunt was alone inside his six-bedroom house when she heard a ruckus downstairs at around 2 a.m. Police tell Us that she was then confronted outside of the home by three men, concealing their faces with bandanas and one carrying a gun. 

"The suspects ordered the victim into a closet and ransacked the location," the LAPD tells Us. "They took cash, some electronics and other items. RHD (Robbery-Homicide Division) is handling the investigation.”

Brown's aunt, luckily, was unharmed.

Brown's Tarzana home is located within a gated community.

The singer was not home at the time of the incident, but arrived on the scene soon after.

This isn't the first time Brown has experienced a home invasion. Just this past May, a woman broke into another of the star's houses, this one in Agoura Hills, Calif.
