A Fullerton man was charged today with stalking singer Rihanna when he allegedly broke into her Hollywood Hills home last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Eduardo Leon (dob 8/30/91) was charged in case BA468036 with one felony count each of stalking, first-degree residential burglary and vandalism, and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.

He is scheduled to be arraigned today in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Samuel Hulefeld of the Target Crimes Division is prosecuting the case.

On May 9, Leon is accused of hopping a fence and entering a house owned by Rihanna, who was not home at the time. The defendant spent about 12 hours inside the home and was arrested the next day after being discovered by the singer’s assistant.

If convicted as charged, Leon faces a possible maximum sentence of six years in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
