It’s not uncommon to hear about celebrities having stalkers, but it never stops being frightening when you hear about a stalker making their way into someone’s home. And it was undoubtedly a fright for Sanaa Lathan when she recently discovered that a male stalker of hers was found sleeping in her home.
According to TMZ, Shawn Caples, 28, was found sleeping in the actress’ laundry room last Friday by contractors. Caples tried to claim that he was Lathan’s husband but the contractors forced him to leave.
Things seemed safe again until Caples later returned and this time Lathan was home. Lathan reportedly yelled at Caples to “get the f— out of here” before calling the cops after he refused to leave.
In her police report, Lathan claims that Caples also showed up to her home again three days after that forcing her to hide in fear for her life.
Caples was eventually arrested for stalking and Lathan was recently granted a restraining order against him, forcing him to stay at least 100 feet away from her once he’s released.
Well, we hope that Lathan remains safe and that law enforcement is able to deal with her stalker before things get even more dangerous. – nicholas robinson
