Taylor Swift's Alleged Stalker Arrested for Breaking into Her NYC Apartment a Third Time
Taylor Swift's alleged stalker struck again. He allegedly broke into her New York City apartment for the third time after just getting out of jail.
A man was recently released from jail for breaking into Taylor Swift’s New York City townhouse. Just after his release he allegedly committed the same crime again.
Police revealed that Roger Alvarado, 23, of Homestead, Florida, was on probation after being released on February 5. He had been arrested for stalking and burglary charges after attempting to break into the “Shake It Off” singer’s $18 million three-story Manhattan building.
His previous arrest, however, did not stop him from returning to her building after his release. This time he apparently took a ladder to her building.
He used it to climb up the building at around 2:30 a.m. He then went on to break a glass door to get inside. Police reveal that no one was home but did not provide information on how he was caught.
According to reports, this is the third time that Alvarado has been arrested at Swift’s home. In April last year, he broke in and according to police used Swift's shower and slept in her bed.
He was arrested and jailed for more than nine months as a result. As part of the sentence, a judge also ordered Alvarado to complete a mental-health program. Two months before that, he was arrested for allegedly breaking the front door with a shovel.
Swift was not home on any of the occasions. In an article published Wednesday, Swift told Elle Magazine that she fears violence. She added that she always takes precautions such as carrying military-grade quick-clotting agents to stop bleeding from a potential gunshot or stab wounds.
"Websites and tabloids have taken it upon themselves to post every home address I've ever had online," Swift told the magazine. "You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things."
