Keanu Reeves 'calls in police over obsessed Matrix fan'

Keanu Reeves has reportedly called in police over fears for his safety after a man turned up at the star's home with a package.

Legal documents obtained by website TMZ reveal the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is investigating a man who showed up at the actor's home last October (15) and placed a FedEx envelope in his mailbox.

The envelope allegedly contained a phone number with the instruction: "I will call the cell provided tomorrow. We need to meet as I have already started building the new world. #masterbuilder", the website reports.

According to the TMZ, the LAPD believe the man has an obsession with Keanu's character, Neo, from The Matrix movies. The mobile phone reference is actually a nod to the first movie.

In the 1999 cult movie Keanu starred as computer hacker who learns about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers from a band of mysterious rebels.

The 51-year-old Canadian actor allegedly told officers he fears the man suffers from some type of mental disorder.

Keanu has suffered a number of encounters with intruders at his Los Angeles home which is reported to be "built like a fort".

In 2014, a female intruder wandered into the star's home and was discovered by a cleaning team - after she had stripped off and jumped into his swimming pool.

The incident happened two days after the star confronted another woman he found in his library. Keanu told police the woman was "behaving erratically". She was not arrested and was taken to a medical facility to be evaluated.

Keanu recently finished shooting the sequel to John Wick, and has a part in Nicolas Winding Refn's upcoming The Neon Demon.
