Singer Gavin DeGraw was assaulted early Monday in New York City and taken by ambulance to the emergency room.

DeGraw, 34, whose hits include "I Don't Want to Be" and "Not Over You," was in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital and believed to have a broken nose and cuts to his face, police tell PEOPLE.

The assault took place in the East Village at about 4:30 a.m., say police, adding that the singer was alone at the time of the incident. He was transported to Bellevue after someone called 911 to report a male needing assistance at the corner of 1st Ave. and 19th St. in Manhattan.

The 911 caller said there was a man with blood on his shirt who appeared to be heavily intoxicated, police say.

DeGraw's reps said in a statement: "Gavin DeGraw was assaulted ... and was taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation. We have no additional information at this time."

DeGraw has a new album due out next month and has been on tour with Train and Maroon 5.
