A 35-year-old New York man is facing trespassing and harassment charges after authorities said he entered two New York residences linked to famed singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.

Police say Joshua Christian, 35, who was arrested on Friday, entered one of the apartment buildings in the city’s Tribeca neighborhood on March 26. He walked through “an unlocked door and stayed illegally” before fleeing on foot when security told him to leave, investigators said.

On June 12, the same man entered another Swift-linked apartment building on the same street and “made threats over the intercom to a 32-year-old woman,” according to a spokesperson for the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Public Information.

Swift, 32, has had trouble with alleged stalkers before. In 2018, police said a man broke into his Tribeca townhouse and took a nap. That same year, a Colorado man was arrested outside a Beverly Hills home owned by Swift with a knife, rope and ammunition.
