Man arrested for allegedly stalking Halle Berry

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police have arrested a suspected stalker at the home of Halle Berry.

Sgt. Enrique Mendoza says off-duty Los Angeles police officers hired by Berry saw the man climbing over a locked security gate at Berry's Hollywood Hills home shortly before 11:30 p.m. Monday.

On-duty officers were called and arrested 27-year-old Richard Franco on suspicion of stalking. He remained jailed on Tuesday.

Sgt. George Hoops tells City News Service that Berry identified Franco as the man who also showed up in her backyard on Saturday and Sunday.

Berry was not injured. Calls to her representatives seeking comment were not immediately returned Tuesday.
