Taylor Swift was the victim of an alleged stalker last month who has now been arrested by the New York City Police Department.
Joshua Christian was booked on Friday on stalking charges after authorities tracked him down to his home, TMZ reports.
The arrest comes after several alleged altercations with the singer and her security team.
Police sources claim to TMZ that Christian arrived at Taylor’s Manhattan home on June 12 at around 10:47 a.m., with the ‘intent to annoy and harass’ the pop star.

The source also claims that he then rang Taylor’s intercom outside her home and allegedly made threats that he would hurt her if she refused to let him in.
It’s not clear if Taylor was home at the time, as it was her security who called the police.
This isn’t the first time the Love Story singer has had to endure threats from stalkers, who have seen the star double her security detail over the years.
The arrest comes after Taylor was allegedly recently engaged to British boyfriend Joe Alwyn after more than five years of dating, although the report remains unconfirmed.

If true, it would be the pop star’s first engagement after a long string of ill-fated relationships.
The Sun claims that the singer, 32, wore an engagement ring ‘behind closed doors’ and that the couple only informed their close friends of the news.
Taylor began dating the Conversations with Friends star, 31, in late 2016 after they were rumored to have interrupted at that year’s Met Gala in New York City.
“Taylor and Joe are incredibly happy, and very much in love,” a source claiming to be close to Joe told the outlet on Wednesday.
They actually got engaged a few months ago but only told their inner circle – immediate family and trusted old friends.
