Halle Berry: Trespasser rings twice at her West Hollywood home
An unidentifed intruder trespassed twice at the Oscar winner's West Hollywood home, reportedly gaining access to the property by scaling an outer fence.
At 11 a.m. Saturday, a staffer spotted the man in the yard and confronted him. The man allegedly pretended to be looking for someone, then scaled a back wall to escape the confrontation.
A presumably shaken Berry went on about her business, until the intruder came again — at roughly the same time Sunday.
Berry was in her kitchen when she peered out of a window to find a man staring back at her, law enforcement sources told TMZ. A book of some kind was in his hand, leading investigators to believe the man was an autograph seeker or perhaps an extremely aggressive paparazzo.
Police visited the house and took reports on both days. Surveillance video or a sketch could be released to aid in identifying the guy.
Stay safe, Halle.
