Shaun Anthony Haywood, 29, has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon after he broke into model Miranda Kerr‘s home and stabbed her security guard.


Haywood, who also goes by Esra, allegedly broke into Kerr’s property in Malibu on Oct. 14 to deliver a letter. Once inside her home, Haywood was confronted by the security guard. The Brisbane, Australia, native then grabbed the guard’s own knife and stabbed him under the right eye. The guard was able to break away and pull his gun, and proceeded to shoot Haywood four times – twice in the chest and twice in the shoulder. Both we’re treated for their wounds and survived.

Neighbor Craig Moore witnessed the incident, and said it was the second time that week that the police were called to Kerr’s home for an intruder. “It’s kind of a crazy thing to happen out here in Malibu,” Moore told KTLA. “I guess it happens everywhere but we just don’t ever have it happen in our neighborhood.”

Haywood faces a possible life sentence if convicted, and his bail is set at more than $1 million.

Neither Kerr nor her 5-year-old-son Flynn were home at the time of the incident. Kerr recently announced her engagement to Evan Spiegel, co-founder and CEO of Snapchat. She was previously married to Orlando Bloom, but they split in 2013.
