Zsa Zsa Gabor's 28-room, 12,000-square-foot Bel Air home was burglarized around 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, claims husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt, reports KTLA. The intruders, whom Anhalt reportedly chased away with a bat, made off with artwork and other property that the Prince estimates be be worth $100,000, although he is not sure exactly what was stolen.

Anhalt says many of the windows and doors were broken and that the house sustained heavy damage. "Police received a call of a hot prowl burglary about 10 a.m. Sunday from the couple’s home in the 1000 block of Bel Air Road, Karen Rayner of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section said," reports CBS Local and TMZ. According to police, the couple reportedly woke up because they thought they heard noises, then woke again sometime later and "found evidence of forced entry." Police are investigating. 94-year-old Gabor has been recuperating at home since last month's surgery to amputate part of her leg.
