Justin Bieber was attacked and knocked to the ground by an unidentified man who broke through a security barrier outside of a Macy's department store in New York City.
It is unknown why the man decided to attack Justin, and Justin himself was overheard saying "What? What?" as he lay on the ground. Justin was at the store to promote his new fragrance "Someday" and had stepped outside of the store to greet fans.

Cops grabbed the attacker and he was escorted away for disorderly conduct. Though shaken up, Justin is reportedly fine and soon after the incident headed back inside Macy's to meet with fans who had won a meet and greet with the singer at the event.
Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts Tweeted, "Yes, Justin is okay. He was shaken up a bit but thankfully was not hurt."
UPDATE: It's now being reported that the "attacker" was actually an undercover cop trying to protect Justin from unruly fans. Reportedly, Justin didn't realize the man was a cop and became defensive, leading to a scuffle. Sources say the cop then identified himself and everything was quickly straightened out by security.
