A man alleged to have been stalking Bella Hadid since December was arrested Thursday night.
TMZ reported the unnamed 37-year-old was picked up by cops outside the model’s apartment after she alerted police officers to his presence.
Bella, 21, recognized the man as she was heading back to her building, according to TMZ, and called law enforcement.
The website said he’d been sending messages via social media threatening to kill her and her family.

Just 24 hours earlier, Bella was seen out and about in the Big Apple wearing a busty sweater that featured an eye-popping cut-out atop her ample assets.
The younger sister of model Gigi teamed the top with equally sizzling leather trousers and a matching leather jacket with dramatic bell-sleeves.
The IMG Models-repped beauty kept her things in a black satchel with red details that was casually slung on one shoulder.
Patent leather lace-up heels and micro-sunglasses helped tie her look together along with diamond huggie earrings.

While Bella is a pro these days, she revealed that red carpet moments used to overwhelm her with anxiety while appearing on her mom’s show Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid last month.
‘Believe me, I get it and I understand it. I was totally there. My sister is very bubbly and very out there, and I was always very reserved.
‘I would literally start crying and shaking if I had to do interviews at red carpet events. It was really nerve-racking and it’s scary, and it’s not only you,’ she told one of the show’s talents.
‘It gets a lot better once you have to talk to people every day. Then you’re like, “OK, I guess it’s my job, I have to do it!”‘ the starlet concluded her advice.
