Keanu Reeves’ home intruder was ‘behaving erratically,’ police say
Keanu Reeves may have given an alleged home intruder just what she was looking for.
A woman is believed to have gained access to the “47 Ronin” star’s Hollywood Hills residence on Sept. 12, Los Angeles Police Department officials said Friday.
Around 5 a.m., “patrol officers responded to a burglary in progress in the 9000 block of Thrasher Avenue,” Sgt. Albert Gonzalez said. “Officers detained one female at the location in her 40s.”
Gonzalez said officers met with Reeves, who “advised them that she obviously did not belong there.”
The woman was “behaving erratically and was taken to a medical facility to be evaluated,” he said. She was not arrested.
Police took a trespassing report, and the investigation is ongoing.
The “John Wick” star, 50, was reportedly sleeping until he heard noises coming from the library. When he made his way to the book room, he found the woman sitting quietly a chair, TMZ said.
That’s when the action star is believed to have calmly approached her and talked to her. After the woman said she was there to meet him, the actor called 911, the site said.
A rep for Reeves did not immediately respond to Los Angeles Times requests for comment.
Incidentally, the actor’s “Speed” costar Sandra Bullock found herself in a similar situation back in June. A man gained entry to the Oscar winner’s home in the middle of the night, and she saw the suspect in the hallway when she opened her bedroom door, according to police affidavits.
