A woman was arrested trying to break into John Cusack's home.

On Tuesday evening (03.09.13) Elizabeth Pahlke first tried to enter the 'Paper Boy' actor's Malibu mansion through a window, but fled when she was spotted by security, she then came back and scaled a fence before being detained by security.

TMZ reports the woman was held by Cusack's security team until local law enforcement officers arrived at the scene to arrest her on suspicion of burglary and felony stalking. She is currently being held on bail for $150,000.

Luckily, Cusack was not home during the incident.

Sources claim Pahlke attempted to enter the actor's home following a previous restraining order filed against her in relation to a prior incident.

The 47-year-old can currently be seen playing former US President Richard Nixon in 'The Butler'.
