Alleged stalker arrested outside Taylor Swift’s home

The man was reportedly wearing a mask and carrying a knife

A man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking outside a Beverly Hills home owned by Taylor Swift.

Julius Sandrock, aged 38, was detained on Saturday when officers visited the property. He had a mask and a knife in his car. Taylor Swift was not at the house at the time.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s website, the man was freed from jail yesterday morning (April 17).


As Billboard reports, he was wearing rubber gloves and a mask when police took him into custody, and a search of his car revealed a knife, ammunition, a rope, and more masks and gloves. Sandrock allegedly told officers that he had driven from his home in Colorado, to see Swift.

Police obtained a temporary restraining order preventing Sandrock from possessing guns while they investigate the case further.

Meanwhile, another man who violated a restraining order and threatened to kill Taylor Swift has been sentenced to 10 years probation.
