Listen To Sandra Bullock's Terrified 9-1-1 Call About A Stalker In Her House
In a Los Angeles courtroom today, Sandra Bullock's attorney played the chilling 9-1-1 call the actress made when her alleged stalker broke into her home nearly a year ago.
According to police reports, Joshua James Corbett broke into Bullock's Bel Air home by jumping over her fence and getting through a locked door in June 2014, CBS News reports. She called police after she was woken up by the sound of banging and saw a man wearing dark clothing walking around her home.
TMZ released the audio of the 9-1-1 call, which was played during the preliminary hearing, and you can hear Bullock's voice shaking as she tells the dispatcher, "Someone broke into my house. I'm in the closet." She says a man walked up to the attic of her home and then says she hears a banging noise on the door.
Bullock gave police instructions on how to get through her security gate and where to find her in the house, according to NBC Los Angeles. When police arrived, they found that Corbett wasn't armed and was holding love letters and magazine photos of Bullock. Her son wasn't home at the time.
Los Angeles police officer Jose Bermudez testified in court and said that Corbett said, "I'm sorry. I love you Sandy."
Later when investigators went to Corbett's home, they found he had stashed a number of handguns, rifles and ammunition. He faces the charges of burglary, stalking, and possessing an arsenal of weapons.
