Kendall Jenner’s alleged stalker has been arrested by ICE, as the agency claims the arrest has averted a tragedy.
According to TMZ, the police had been tracking the alleged stalker for several weeks.
The suspect identified as, John Ford twice showed up at Kendall’s home. Last October, he scaled a hill and ended up by her swimming pool and came back again shortly thereafter and ended up on her porch.
John Ford is a Canadian citizen whose visitor visa to the US has already expired, making his stay in the country illegal.
He was finally arrested on Monday in New Mexico at a hotel. An ICE spokesman told TMZ;
“This timely arrest could very well have prevented a violent crime. Our special agents acted quickly on this tip to ensure that this obsessive behavior didn’t escalate to become a tragedy.”
Reacting to the arrest, the Kardashian-Jenner family says,
“We are extremely appreciative of the hard work by the Los Angeles Police Dept. and ICE, whose swift response and professionalism led to this man’s apprehension. His actions have not only had a severe impact on Kendall’s life, but the entire family’s sense of security, causing us to fear for Kendall’s safety as well as our own. Knowing this individual is in custody gives us peace of mind.”
