Miranda Kerr's intruder charged with attempted murder

Miranda Kerr's intruder charged with attempted murder after stabbing her security guard.

The security guard was monitoring the 33-year-old model's home in Malibu on October 14 when the intruder - who was armed with a knife - jumped over the fence of the property and slashed the guard in the face.

On Tuesday (25.10.16), Los Angeles prosecutors charged the man - now known as Shaun Anthony Haywood - with one count each of attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon.

The 29-year-old man could face up to life in prison if found guilty of the charges brought against him.

It is not yet known if the security guard will face any charges for drawing a weapon against the assailant after he shot the man three times in response to the original attack.

A spokesperson for the LA County Sheriff's Department confirmed at the time: "The security guard drew a weapon and fired three to four rounds, hitting the suspect in the face and upper torso area."

Thankfully, the Victoria's Secret Angel and her five-year-old son Flynn - who she shares with ex-husband Orlando Bloom - were not home at the time of the attack.

Neighbour Craig Moore said at the time: "It's kind of a crazy thing to happen out here in Malibu. I guess it happens everywhere but we just don't ever have it happen in our neighbourhood."

Miranda bought the lavish property - which has an estimated worth of $2,500,000 - in 2014 after she split from 39-year-old Orlando.

Now, she spends most of her time in a $12 million mansion - the former home of Harrison Ford - in Brentwood, with her CEO fiancé Evan Spiegel who co-founded the app Snapchat.
