A man allegedly clutching a pair of scissors has been arrested by police after allegedly trying to force himself inside the Los Angeles home of Miley Cyrus.
Los Angeles police Lt Brian Wendling said that employees inside the house in the Studio City area of the city called police around 4am local time on Saturday after the man came to the door and claimed to be a friend of the 19-year-old singer-actress.
Lt Wendling added the suspect then repeatedly threw himself against an outside wall as if he was trying to break into the house. Cyrus was not home at the time.
The man, who was not identified, was arrested after officers saw him jump behind some bushes. He was carrying a pair of scissors.
Lt Wendling said charges had not yet been filed.
