Police have charged an Aussie man with an attempt to murder a security guard while trying to enter supermodel Miranda Kerr’s house.
Twenty-nine-year-old Shaun Anthony Haywood might face a life sentence for the crime he committed at the model’s home in Los Angeles. Prosecutors have claimed that the man went to Kerr’s property by climbing a fence and stabbed the security guard’s eye in an attempt to do so. Reports have suggested that the man wanted to enter the house to deliver a letter to the Aussie supermodel on October 14.
The guard, however, shot the man to stop him from entering Kerr’s house. Haywood has been charged with willful, deliberate and premeditated attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon.
According to the police reports, when the man climbed and crossed the fence and had a battle with the security guard, the supermodel was not at home. Miranda Kerr is presently engaged to Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel after she was married to British actor Orlando Bloom from 2010 to 2013. She has a son, five-year-old Flynn, from the marriage.
Haywood was due to present in the Los Angeles county superior court on Tuesday to face the possible charges. Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Dickinson is handling the matter in which the charged Aussie man inflicted “great bodily injury” to the victim. The attorney said that bail will only be recommended to be allowed at over US$1 million (AU$1.3 million).
In the incident, both men were injured and taken to a hospital. While the security guard was reported to be stable, the suspect had not-so-severe injuries, according to The Guardian.
While Kerr did not yet open up about the incident, she did talk about her surprise marriage proposal in July to a media outlet. “[Was I expecting it?] Absolutely not,” she told Female First. “He said to me, ‘Miranda, I’m telling you now, this is the first and last time I’m going to kneel down in front of you.’ I was terribly nervous and emotional, trembling with happiness.”
