(CBS/KCBS) LOS ANGELES - San Diego police are now investigating Los Angeles Lakers' star Kobe Bryant after he allegedly injured a man at a Southland church.

Bryant allegedly grabbed a man's wrist and cell phone at a service in St. Therese of Carmel in San Diego Sunday, reports CBS station KCBS.

Bryant was attending a church service when he thought someone was taking pictures of him with a cellphone, according to broadcast reports. Police said that Bryant immediately snatched the phone from the man. But when the NBA All-star saw no pictures on it, he left the church.

The alleged victim claims he had to go to the hospital to treat a wrist injury, according to KCBS.

No charges have been filed against Bryant.
