John Cusack can breathe a little easier.

An intruder was arrested Tuesday evening after allegedly showing up at the 47-year-old actor's home in Malibu, CA, and then attempting to break in.

E! News confirms that 45-year-old Elizabeth Pahlke was arrested at approximately 6 p.m. and booked at a nearby police station on felony stalking and burglary charges. She remains behind bars with bail set at $150,000.

According to TMZ, Malibu's Finest took the woman into custody after being alerted by Cusack's security, who observed her unsuccessfully trying to gain entry through a window and then scaling a fence on the property. The actions were caught on surveillance cameras.

The website also reported that Pahlke presented enough of a concern that the Say Anything star's camp served her with a restraining order on Tuesday, which prompted her visit to his estate uninvited.

No word on Cusack's whereabouts. A rep for the Say Anything star was unavailable for comment.

UPDATE: On Sept. 5, Pahle pleaded not guilty to charges of stalking and attempted first-degree burglary and was jailed in lieu of $200,000 bail while she awaits a Sept. 16 court appearance.
