So scary! Selena Gomez had a frightening close-call this weekend, after a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of trespassing at her home. 

Officer Rosario Herrera says a family member called 911 on Saturday morning after seeing an intruder on the property in the San Fernando Valley. Fox News Latino reports that it's unclear whether or not Gomez, 21, was home at the time. 

Herrera reports that Juan Daniel Garcia, of El Mirage, Ariz., was booked on suspicion of trespassing. Police don’t know if Garcia has obtained a lawyer yet, but sites are reporting that he admitted he trespassed onto Gomez's property because he wanted to meet the "Come and Get It" singer in-person.

This isn’t the first time Gomez has encountered menacing fans. Several years ago, a stalker travelled from Illinois to meet the singer and threatened to kill her. A judge granted her a restraining order against the individual in 2011.
