Miley Cyrus dodged a bullet last night -- some guy armed with scissors was ARRESTED at the singer's L.A. home after he jumped her fence and said he wanted to meet her ... according to law enforcement sources.
The incident occurred early Saturday morning ... cops responded to a 911 call from Miley's L.A. home, not placed by the singer. When they arrived they arrested a man named Jason Luis Rivera for trespassing.
Law enforcement tells us, Rivera jumped the fence surrounding Miley's house and was carrying a pair of scissors when they apprehended him. He told cops at the time he wanted to see the pop star and that's why he was on her property.
Miley was not home when the incident occurred.
