A 27-year-old man has been arrested for trespassing after he was caught scaling a fence to get into Kendall Jenner’s Hollywood Hills mansion on Monday night.

Identified by TMZ as Richard Eggers, the intruder is said to have hopped over a fence neighbouring the supermodel’s home just before midnight yesterday before being apprehended by a security guard as he made his way up Kendall’s driveway.

The security guard restrained Eggers until officers from the Los Angeles Police Department could arrive to arrest him.

Eggers reportedly told attending officers that he didn’t mean to trespass and had been going door-to-door in the exclusive neighbourhood to obtain signatures for a petition calling for President Trump’s impeachment.

Investigators, however, say this isn’t the first time Eggers has attempted to gain access to Kendall’s home, having been spotted on security cameras in September loitering around the $6.5 million property.

On that occasion Eggers was able to flee before guards could reach him, however he wasn’t afforded the same luck on Monday  night.

It remains unclear if Kendall Jenner was home at the time of the incident. If she was, TMZ reports that she never emerged from the home during the commotion.

Such occurrences are being all too common for Jenner, who has been subject to a number of similar instances of trespassing over the few years year, including one incident involving her Canadian stalker John Ford, 38, in June 2018.

Ford scaled a hill and broke into the gated community where the 24-year-old model resides, before being apprehended on her porch. Ford is then said to have attempted to gain access to the property again on a separate occasion.

It later emerged that Ford’s visa had expired and he had been staying in the US illegally. He was deported from America by ICE officials and Kendall was granted a restraining order against him last November.

In June, law enforcement reported that Ford gone missing with neither police nor his family sure of his whereabouts.

Kendall’s team said they were on full alert and prepared to act should he turn up in Beverly Hills again.

The supermodel also had another frightening incident involving an obsessive fan in 2016, where she testified in court against alleged stalker Shavaughn McKenzie after he followed her to her Hollywood Hills home.

For his actions, McKenzie was charged with one count of misdemeanor stalking and one court of misdemeanor trespassing.

Addressing the judge during the 2016 trial, Jenner said: ‘I really don’t feel safe in my own house.’
