Robert De Niro is dealing with a holiday home invader.
Authorities have arrested a 30-year-old woman who broke into the Oscar winner’s home in the early morning of Dec. 19, a spokesperson for New York City Police Department tells E! News.
At around 2:45 a.m., members of the 19th precinct public safety team observed the woman—who was known to the department for numerous prior burglar arrests—entering a residence through the basement door, which had visible signs of forced entry, according to the spokesperson. Authorities then entered the building, the spokesperson said, and found the woman “attempting to remove property.”
Senior police officials tell NBC New York the woman was allegedly found using De Niro’s iPad while the actor and his 10-year-old daughter Helen Grace, who he shares with ex Grace Hightower, slept upstairs, senior police officials say.
The woman, identified as Shanice Aviles, has been charged with burglary and remains in police custody, the NYPD spokesperson tells E! News.
