According to TMZ.com, "a man wearing all-black clothing and a baseball cap scaled the security gate just before midnight Tuesday at Demi's Hollywood Hills home."
"We're told the man had a ladder and made it on to the balcony of her home, and that's when the dogs began furiously barking," TMZ reported. "The house manager sensed something was wrong, walked over to the balcony and saw the man peering through Demi's bedroom window," TMA reported. "The live-in house manager ran to the phone, called 911 and left. By the time cops arrived the bad guy was gone."
The actress bought the house in September 2016, and was in Boston promoting a new recording at the time of the incident, TMZ reported. A string of burglaries have been reported in recent months targeting celebrities in the Hollywood and Beverly Hills area, including Alanis Morissette, Nicki Minaj, Emmy Rossum, Jaime Pressly, David Spade, Yasiel Puig and Derek Fisher. There was no indication that this latest incident was related to any of the earlier ones.
