UPDATE: Franco has now been charged with one felony count of stalking. He will be arraigned in a Los Angeles
Halle Berry has been issued a temporary restraining order — or TRO — against Richard Franco, the man who has trespassed on her property numerous times.
According to the TRO obtained by RadarOnline.com, Franco must stay at least 100 yards away from Berry, her home, her daughter, her vehicle and her workplace.
Listed as a 27-year-old male at 5’9”, Berry claimed she has no idea who Franco is and has “no desire to have any contact with him.”
“I looked out the glass door leading to my enclosed and gated back yard and was shocked to see a complete stranger, carrying something in his hands and approaching us,” Berry write in her declaration of the first time Franco approached her home.
The next night, Franco showed up at her home again and Berry said, “As I opened my glass kitchen door and closed it behind me, all of a sudden I sensed someone behind me and turned to see the same intruder standing less than a foot behind me starring at me through my glass kitchen door.”
Franco was arrested Monday night in the yard of Berry’s Hollywood Hills home after he jumped over a back wall and onto her property.
“I am also informed that Franco has a criminal history of violence, theft and drug offenses,” Berry wrote.
“This person has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have and I am extremely frightened of him and what he might do to me or those I love.”
He remains in custody under $150,000 bond.
