Trespasser arrested at Rihanna's house

19 June 2013, 16:33

Los Angeles - A man was arrested for creeping around on Rihanna's roof on Monday night.

Police were called to the Stay singer's home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles after private security guards reported they had detained a 26-year-old male trespasser on her property shortly after 22:00.

The man, who was adamant he did not know it was Rihanna's house, despite police finding a Google map of the area on his phone, was arrested and is still in custody, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

Sources also told gossip website TMZ.com that the young man's bail was set at $2 882 (R28 800).

Other restraining orders

Rihanna was not home at the time of the incident as she is currently in the UK on her Diamonds world tour.

The 25-year-old Barbados native was previously forced to obtain a three-year restraining order against obsessed fan Steveland Barrow in March, after he broke into the property next door, which he wrongly believed to be hers.

In her request for the protection order, Rihanna revealed she feared for her safety after the male fan told police officers that he was invited to her home and allegedly slept in a bed.

He also stole some items from the house. Rihanna previously had a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown after he beat her in 2009.
