Beverly Hills police on Sunday arrested a prowler at the home of actor Tom Cruise.

Cruise was not home at the time, and officials said a security guard in the actor's employ used a Taser stun gun to subdue the suspect.

The arrest occurred at 9:35 p.m. at Cruise's home on Calle Vista Drive.

"Upon arrival, officers contacted a lone male suspect who was attempting to leave the location. The suspect had been previously detained by a security officer, who was on duty at the residence and had observed the suspect climbing a fence to gain access to the property," the police department said in a statement.

Police said the suspect was arrested and then taken to a local hospital for examination after being shot with the stun gun.

His condition was not known.
