Los Angeles police have arrested a man who reportedly scaled the wall at the home of Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, the L.A. Times reports.

The unemployed L.A. man, Richard A. Franco, described as a community college student in his mid-20s, is accused of stalking the actress. The incident was reportedly caught on security cameras.

According to the story: “Sources familiar with the investigation said Franco scaled a concrete wall surrounding Berry’s home and was immediately confronted by security guards on the property. He did not resist and cooperated fully with officers, according to sources familiar with the investigation. They immediately called the LAPD and he was arrested on suspicion of felony stalking.”

Berry has been stalked before. In a 2004 incident involving a different man, she received a restraining order against an alleged stalker.

Berry won an Academy Award in 2002 for her leading role in “Monster’s Ball.” She received an Emmy in 2000 as lead actress in HBO’s "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.’
