An intruder caught trying to break into Kendall Jenner’s Los Angeles property was arrested – but was quickly released by law enforcement without charge.
The model, 26, has been the subject of several stalking trials and has seen intruders attempt to gain access to her home and enter her land without permission.
Sources told TMZ that a man named Arnold Babcock, 31, was arrested by security inside his gated community asking him to see his reality TV star.
Oh no! Trespasser caught trying to break into Kendall Jenner’s Los Angeles property was arrested – but was quickly released by law enforcement without charge
The online outlet claimed the man was walking around looking for Kendall and that this was not the first time he has been arrested for it.
The security guard held Babcock until police arrived to arrest him for trespassing, but he was released shortly thereafter.
According to TMZ, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, George Gascon, rarely files a trespassing complaint, which is frustrating for law enforcement.

They said they believed suspects had more incentive to commit crimes again.
The district attorney’s office told the publication, “Our office charges for trespassing cases as appropriate based on all of the circumstances.”
In June, a man reportedly attempted to find Kendall at her Los Angeles home and showed up at the star’s exclusive community door in an attempt to see her, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
Although the guards did not allow him to enter, he then allegedly walked around them and climbed the wall that guarded the community.

The guards would have been familiar with the man as he had made several attempts to see Jenner before.
Unlike his previous attempts, he then scaled the wall in order to get past the guards, although he cut his hand badly enough to require medical attention.
Police were called to the scene and the intruder was apprehended, although it is not clear whether the guards first caught him or whether the police captured him.
Despite his attempt to climb the wall, he was arrested before going to Jenner’s house.
After a trip to the hospital to treat his severed hand, the intruder was convicted of trespassing and released from jail after 10 a.m.
Jenner is said to have avoided the house following an earlier stalking incident and she traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico this weekend with her friend Hailey Bieber.
In April, a 27-year-old man named Shaquan King entered his property and attempted to swim naked in his pool, TMZ reported.
During the frightening break-in attempt, he started knocking on doors and windows and calling Jenner, who was home but safe from the stalker.
After giving up on getting her out, he tried to enter the pool, although he was overpowered by security guards and arrested by police shortly after.
The catwalk star was then granted a five-year injunction against the lean diver enthusiast.

The stalker also terrorized Jenner’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner.
He only spent six hours in jail for trespassing on Kendall’s property and visited Kylie’s home shortly after being released.
The cosmetics mogul was able to get his own injunction against the stalker, though a judge only granted a three-year shorter order.
Kendall had already moved from her last home, located in West Hollywood, in 2017 after being the victim of a burglary.
She had another fear of stalkers earlier in April, when she told a judge that a Los Angeles Police Department detective told her that a 24-year-old man named Malik Bowker had traveled across the country with the intention of purchasing an illegal gun for the ‘murder.
They said he intended to kill himself at the time.
The podium star quickly got an injunction against him, forcing Bowker to stay at least 100 yards away from her.
At the time, he was being held in the psychiatric ward of a hospital, although she said she feared he was looking for her after her release, TMZ reported.
So far, Jenner has taken no action to sell her current home, although she does not appear to have any plans to return.
