Man arrested near Taylor Swift's NYC townhouse after reported break-in attempt

Taylor Swift’s New York City townhouse in Tribeca appears to have been the target of another break-in attempt, as reported on Saturday when police responded to a report of a disorderly person in the vicinity. Witnesses stated that the man attempted but failed to enter the townhouse in the early afternoon. Although police did not officially confirm a break-in attempt at Swift’s home, they arrested a man on the same street after receiving information that he tried to open a door to a building.

The arrested individual faces charges related to an unrelated 2017 warrant out of Brooklyn for allegedly failing to answer a summons. Authorities have not disclosed the man’s name. A representative for Taylor Swift has not provided comments on the incident, and it remains unclear if Swift was present at the home during the attempted break-in. On Sunday, she traveled to the Buffalo, New York area, where her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, was scheduled to play against the Buffalo Bills in an NFL playoff game.

Swift’s Tribeca townhouse has experienced several break-ins and attempts in the past when she was not present, including incidents involving alleged stalkers. In 2022, a man was charged with trespassing and stalking after entering two Tribeca residences linked to Swift. Another individual was arrested the same year for crashing a car into the townhouse, stating to police that he wouldn’t leave until he met with Swift. In 2018, a man broke into the townhouse, took a nap, and was later charged with another break-in after serving a jail sentence.

Swift has faced similar incidents at her other homes in Beverly Hills, California, and Watch Hill, Rhode Island, where alleged stalkers have been arrested by the police.
