Halle Berry -- Repeat 'Stalker' Arrested at Her Home

7/12/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... the man who terrified Halle Berry all weekend returned to her Hollywood Hills home late Monday night -- and this time police busted the suspect on the scene after Halle ID'd him.

Law enforcement sources say the man jumped over the back wall at Halle's home right around 11PM Monday night. This time her private security -- off-duty police officers -- were watching the suspect on a security camera as he entered the grounds.

They quickly nabbed the guy and called LAPD officers to the scene -- who arrested and booked him on suspicion of felony stalking.

We're told police believe this is the same man Halle spotted in her backyard Saturday and Sunday ... prompting an all out search for the suspect.

UPDATE: The man has been identified as 27-year-old Richard Franco.

The problem with celebrities is they are forgetting that they chose to live in the limelight and expose themselves to the world in their best shape or form, dressed or not dressed. Some fans of celebrities do take it too far, but then again, celebrities should have a 24/7 body guard, a bulldog perhaps.

She probably should have never gone naked in films. The topless scene in one of her movies - where she was out by the pool - was completely gratuitous and unnecessary. Now she's dealing with the ramifications.

She should have shot him, she'd only be protecting herself and child.

It's funny how people "can't stand her drama",is "tired of her" and "want her to go away", yet they take the time to post about her. lol It's obvious she means something to you. Otherwise you would have passed the article up and never looked back! People kill me with their stupidness!

Someone at TMZ obviously hates Halle Berry. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world yet they always seem to post the most unflattering photo of her and do their best to make her seem like a bitch for protecting her child. (nothing to do with this story I know but the photo is deliberate.) This woman is a talented oscar winning actress and a wonderful mother with a gorgeous body NOT surgically enhanced so lay off!

Beatrix Kiddo 17 minutes ago She doesn't seem to be aging very well. That Butch haircut went out of style after the eighties. I'm sure that she secretly loves this stalker episode. It will give her more reason to be a hysterical Diva. Such an ignorant Drama Queen

What do you look like, and how would you feel if someone was stalking you , you sound ignorant for making such comments . Think about it , you are in your house and someone jumping the fence to get to you , what would you do , how would you handle it ????

I'm glad TMZ still has the 'Comment' section cause I don't Blog, Facebook or Twitter although I have been known to Twitch occasionally. Stalkers? Photo-Hogs? Whats the differance?! It's scary & I'm glad Halle is safe. All the 'Stars' would be much safer if the people would stop with the Idol Worship. So ok you saw her in a movie. You see her in public & go nuts....You see your trash collector more you go crazy when you see them at the store? Here is a fact! The 'Stars' Don't care about You! Oh Look! Its....I gotta run!
