Ben Affleck's home intruder could face a potential misdemeanor trespass charge but cops have to find him first.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the Los Angeles Police Department's hunt for the suspect who scaled the Oscar winner's gate and got onto his $20 million property is proving to be a hard case to crack.
That's because authorities are having trouble identifying him.
A spokesperson for the LAPD tells RadarOnline.com that police are finding it difficult to find a suspect in the crime because he cleverly covered his tracks.
Affleck's home intruder was caught on tape, thanks to the paparazzi that was stationed outside his L.A. mansion on Tuesday trying to get a picture of the actor with Jennifer Lopez.
The suspect wore blue sneakers, a black jacket displaying “security” in gold lettering, and a mask.
However, we've learned cops found a bike that they believe the suspect ditched near the scene before taking off on foot.
The spokesperson tells RadarOnline.com that if the suspect is identified, he could face serious charges.
If Affleck's trespasser is apprehended, the case will get transferred to the city attorney's office who will decide the suspect's fate.
It is unclear if the actor was home during the scary incident but his rumored girlfriend was thousands of miles away.
Hours after the news broke, J Lo was photographed looking concerned and clutching her phone while walking into a local gym.
The singer is up-to-date with everything going on in Affleck's life because the two are reportedly in communication "every day" since their weekend getaway to Montana.
As for J Lo's ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, sources tell us he's "angry and embarrassed" about how quickly his former flame moved on and he's cooking up a plan with his PR team to stick it to her.
