X-Men star Famke Janssen has faced off against her share of menacing threats on screen, but this one literally hit close to home.

The 47-year-old actress has alerted police to a creepy burglary at her New York City apartment this past weekend after she came home and found a children's book by her bed.

Per published reports, the New York City Police Department confirmed that it is investigating an alleged break-in that happened Saturday at Janssen's penthouse in Greenwich Village.

The actress reportedly discovered that someone had placed a copy of the children's book The Lonely Doll on a shelf by her bed, but she claims that no one else had access to her apartment.

The book tells the story of a doll looking for playmates before later befriending two bears, who promise to always stay by her side.

There were no signs of forced entry, authorities state, and nothing appears to have been stolen.

Per the New York Daily News, in 2005 the actress was stalked by a fan who repeatedly sent her photos and letters, and she filed a harassment report with police.

The Dutch-born Janssen was most recently seen in The Wolverine, in which her character, Jean Grey, popped up in a series of ghostly visions by Hugh Jackman's titular hero. Filmmakers have yet to reveal whether the actress will appear in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, in which several of her X-Men costars—including Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and Halle Berry—will be reprising their roles.

Janssen currently stars in the Netflix horror series Hemlock Grove.
