Police responded to a burglary report Tuesday night at the west San Fernando Valley home of Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, marking the fourth such response to one of the slugger's residences in the last two years, according to a report.

Citing law enforcement sources, TMZ reported that police responded to Puig's Encino home when one of his associates reported the crime. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that officers responded at about 8 p.m. Tuesday to a home in the 5300 block of Louise Avenue in Encino for a burglary report.

Puig's home is located in the area.

No arrests were reported early Wednesday.

Three men in their 20s left the location in a four-door Toyota sedan, police said. A detailed description of the men was not immediately available.

It was not immediately clear whether anything was stolen. 

The burglary marks at least the third such report involving a Puig home in the last two years.
