A suspected stalker broke into Taylor Swift’s New York City home and took a nap, police have said.

Officers investigating a reported break-in found 22-year-old Roger Alvarado asleep in the pop star’s home on Friday evening.

Swift was not at the property at the time.

Alvarado, of Homestead, Florida, was arrested on charges of stalking, burglary, criminal mischief and trespassing.

Police said he was arrested at the same address on 13 February on charges of breaking the front door with a shovel.

Last week, a man from Colorado was arrested outside the singer’s Beverly Hills home.

Julius Sandrock, 38, was wearing a mask and rubber gloves, and had a knife, a rope and ammunition on him, police said.

He was released from custody amid a continuing investigation.
