UPDATE: The man who attempted to break into Miranda Kerr's Malibu home has been formally charged with mayhem and attempted murder of the security guard protecting the model's property, E! News has learned.

The man in question faces one felony count each of attempted willful, deliberate and premeditated murder, aggravated mayhem as well as assault with a deadly weapon. Bail has currently be recommended at more than $1 million and should the defendant be found guilty of the charges, he faces a possibly maximum sentence of life in state prison.


Kerr's was the scene of a violent incident earlier this morning.

E! News has learned that while the model was not present at the time, a confrontation between an intruder and a security guard left them both hospitalized.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department confirmed that a stabbing and shooting took place in the Malibu home after the intruder tried to climb over a gate and onto the private property.

The intruder was shot during the scuffle shortly after the security officer was stabbed, the LASD explained.

TMZ reports that the incident took place just outside of the property and not inside the house. Neither the security guard nor the intruder suffered life-threatening injuries, however, the security guard was airlifted from the scene of the ordeal and transported to a nearby Los Angeles hospital.

According to a press release, the security guard is listed in stable condition while the intruder is in critical condition.

Miranda bought the home back in 2012 following her divorce from Orlando Bloom.

The brunette beauty put down over $2 million for the ocean side property, which boasts four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

The Australian native has yet to speak publicly on the scary matter. Detectives are actively investigating the incident at present time.
