Alec Baldwin stalker suspect arrested in New York City
A Canadian woman was arrested Sunday night in New York City on suspicion of stalking Alec Baldwin after allegedly trying to contact him repeatedly via email and then in person this past week in the Hamptons and in Manhattan.
Genevieve Sabourin, 40, of Montreal reportedly flew to the U.S. and attempted to contact Baldwin at his Hamptons home on March 31, according to New York Post sources, after previously allegedly sending emails to the newly engaged Baldwin seeking to have his love, his baby and also some of his money.
Though the "30 Rock" actor filed a police complaint, the Post said Sabourin eluded authorities in Long Island and over the course of a few days twice tried to go face-to-face with Baldwin in the city, hitting up an event he was at and then swinging by the building where he lives. A call from the doorman to the actor, who by then was back in the Hamptons, got police involved again.
Sabourin was set to be arraigned Monday, according to the New York Daily News. She was held on suspicion of aggravated harassment and stalking.
"As you know, stalking is a serious issue, so we've turned this matter over to the New York Police Department," Baldwin's rep told TMZ.
Sabourin's IMDb profile lists a handful of minor acting gigs, plus cites her as a unit publicist on the 2002 Eddie Murphy movie "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," in which Baldwin had an uncredited cameo. Canadian locations on that film included Montreal and Toronto, according to IMDb.
