LOS ANGELES – Sandra Bullock’s recent encounter with a stalker in her home reads like a scene from a scary movie in newly released documents, painting a portrait of an obsessed fan who described himself as her husband.
Joshua James Corbett, 39, was later found to have a stash of illegal weapons, including two fully automatic rifles and a machine gun, at his home. But he was unarmed when he broke into Bullock’s home, police said.
Investigators said the sleeping actress was awakened at 6:30 a.m. June 8 by banging noises, opened her bedroom door and saw a dark-clad stranger moving toward the stairs.
Bullock, 49, who has portrayed brave, strong women on screen, acted quickly, locking the door and summoning police.
Sandy, I’m sorry! the man shouted as he was being taken away. Don’t press charges.
Police determined Corbett had scaled the gates of the home and forced open a locked sunroom glass door. He remains in jail awaiting trial and could face more than seven years in prison.
