An armed burglar was arrested on Natalie Portman’s house in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon, police confirmed to Page Six.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police department said police received a call about an assault with a deadly weapon suspect on Portman’s residence at 3:25 pm local time. The man was taken into custody shortly after.

The LAPD explained that a shovel, a gun, knife or any other object that can be used “in a threatening manner” is considered a deadly weapon. It is not known exactly what the man was reportedly wearing.

The police said the suspect was placed on a medical hold, but cannot confirm whether he is still in a hospital, psychiatric hospital, or the police.

The LAPD identified the man as a white man. According to TMZ, it was the same man who Portman, 37, previously had a restraining order on and he was in violation.

In January, the actress got a permanent restraining order on a man who allegedly said that his name was John Wick and tried to break into her house. Wick is a fictional assassin and the title character in 2014 Keanu Reeves movie.

Portman’s rep has not responded to Page Six’s request for comment.
