DETROIT (WITI) -- Eminem came face-to-face with a home intruder who slipped past his security guards and made it into the rapper’s living room, TMZ reports. The guards were reportedly at the front of the house as the suspect allegedly broke in through the back.
Police sources and sources connected to Eminem told TMZ the break-in happened earlier in April around 4 a.m. at the rapper’s Detroit-area home in a gated community.
TMZ reported, per law enforcement, the suspect, 26-year-old Matthew Hughes, used a paving stone to smash a kitchen window, and then climbed into the house.
An alarm went off waking up Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers), who found the intruder in his living room. He reportedly detained the man while security ran up and grabbed the man.
The Altoona Morning Sun reports Matthew David Hughes was charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property between $1,000 and $20,000 for the April 5 incident at Eminen’s home in Manchester Estates, according to Clinton Township Police.
