LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say they have arrested a juvenile for making prank calls that led officers to respond en masse to the homes of Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher.

Police refused to identify any details about the suspect, who hasn't been charged over the incidents.

Police announced the arrest Tuesday, more than a week after the person was arrested.

Police say they suspect the juvenile is responsible for reporting that multiple people had been shot at Kutcher's home on Oct. 3, and for reporting shots fired at Bieber's home a week later.

Neither star was home at the time of reports, which were made electronically.

The Los Angeles district attorney's office is reviewing the case and couldn't release any details.
