Law enforcement sources believe 'Ye may have committed attempted ROBBERY as well as assault at LAX, where he freaking lost it on a paparazzo.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and the victim, who was knocked to the ground, was taken to a hospital following the attack, after which Kanye fled.

The Robbery Homicide Unit and LAPD are investigating.

The victim wants to press charges against Kanye West, TMZ reports, and has already been interviewed by the police regarding the incident.

They determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack, but police will reportedly refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery.

Standard operating procedure is to go after a suspect on the most serious charge he may have committed, even if he also committed another (battery).

Take a look at what happened earlier today below:

Kanye was leaving the terminal with his bodyguard when about 4-5 paparazzi members approached and began to take photos, which he despises.

One of them was rather aggressive with questions, something he's been particularly sensitive to since ever since he started dating Kim Kardashian.

When the dude refused to heed the rapper's warning to back off and not talk (ever), Kanye exploded in epic fashion, even by Kanye standards.

Whatever you think of his actions, clearly, this is an ongoing issue for West. See some of Kanye's previous violent run-ins with cameramen below:

@Faith What I said is what I meant and is my comment. Kanye has a right to walk without anything poping up in his face whether he's a celebrity or not and I said Psycho Whites cuz it would appear to me that whenever blacks don't do as they want they have problems. Why can't they just leave people alone

Idc who it is...yall know pap should NOT be all in ANY1'S face like that, I mean, get your pic & keep it moving. I think it's gonna take for "ANOTHER" pap to get 'hurt' & ONLY then will they change something about it. I saw 1 on you tube & they was all on someone's car, scratching it, while tryna get a pic of some1 else. It's bull crap. Well, don't say you didn't here it here 1st!

Psycho Whites at it again thinking they can do what they want when they want. "Oh it's ok if I take ur picture, put my camera all in ur face, blind u while taking u picture and yes u will talk to me whether u want to or not cuz I'm Psycho White and u have to do what I want." I don't know who and the Hell these people think they are but they are in need of Psychological Help

Really??? The 'race card'??? I don't care what color the pap is or the celeb...no one should have anyone in their face like that all the time. I don't understand why the paps are not charged with stalking!! That is exactly what it is! My gosh, they chase them in cars, sit outside their homes, bombard them at airports, pastes themselves against windows at stores, restaurants, etc....instead of risking lives for the sake of a photo...GET A REAL JOB!!!!!!!!

Is it possible that you "Hollywood Gossip" could let him disappear into that good night.

Terrible? Right.... Terrible is when your ass jerks a microphone out of a 16 year old girls hand at the Grammys so you can give a shout out to your homies. His is a jive ass punk. Standing there like an idiot with his Trayvon hoodie. Give me a fu*king break. This attention seeking fool is the kind that GOES OUT looking for shit and when he finds it he cries like the bitch he is.

These people are vultures. They descend on anyone and anything famous and annoy the hell out of them. Kanye is not the first to get annoyed, nor will he be the last. I think there should be laws concerning these people. They're just terrible.
