A man was arrested Friday night on stalking charges after he allegedly yelled over an intercom at Taylor Swift’s Manhattan apartment, harassing the singer and eventually breaking into the apartment building, according to reports and law enforcement.

Key Facts

TMZ first reported Joshua Christian was arrested Friday for showing up to the singer’s Tribeca apartment building in early June and threatening to harm her if she wouldn’t be with him.

Christian was apprehended at 7:20 p.m. on Friday for criminal trespassing and stalking, the New York Police Department confirmed to Forbes.

Christian yelled over the Tribeca apartment’s intercom and entered the building, where he was confronted by security and then fled on foot, according to the NYPD, which declined to say whether the incident involved Swift because it does not share the names of victims, though it did share the building location, where Swift owns three apartments.

Key Background

Christian is not the first person to face charges for breaking into Swift’s New York City apartments: In 2019, a man was arrested for breaking into her townhouse for the second time after he climbed a ladder and broke a glass door to get inside the home, though Swift was not there. During his first break-in, he allegedly used Swift’s shower and slept in her bed. In 2020, a man was sentenced to 30 months in prison for stalking and sending emails to Swift threatening to sexually assault and kill her. Stalkers have targeted the singer’s various residences across the country, including her home in Rhode Island and her Beverly Hills, Los Angeles property.

Crucial Quote

“My fear of violence has continued into my personal life. I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds. Websites and tabloids have taken it upon themselves to post every home address I’ve ever had online. You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things,” Swift wrote in a 2019 essay for Elle.
