Casey Affleck’s girlfriend Caylee Cowan reportedly awoke to find an intruder standing over her bed inside her LA home on Tuesday morning.
Cowan, 24, was by herself in her bedroom when she opened her eyes and found a man just feet away from her at about 3 a.m., LAPD sources told TMZ on Wednesday.
The actress then reportedly screamed, scaring off the intruder, and proceeded to swiftly call the cops and describe what the man looked like. Cops descended on her neighborhood and were able to nab the guy after he was spotted running down her street.
While authorities were able to catch the suspect, he reportedly made off with some of Cowan’s belongings. He was arrested and booked for burglary, the website reported.
There was apparently no signs of forced entry into her home and TMZ reports that Affleck was not present at the time of the incident.
The “Sunrise in Heaven” actress, though most likely shaken, was fortunately unharmed after the scare.
Her rep did not immediately respond to our request for comment. The LAPD has also been reached for comment.
Cowan and Affleck, 46, have been linked as a couple since November 2021 when Page Six exclusively published photos of the duo making out and embracing in Los Angeles, going Instagram-official that same month. And in January, they smooched again, sharing an open-mouth kiss in a photo posted to his Instagram.
Affleck gushed over his girlfriend in the post at the time, writing, “I don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I am determined to figure it out and keep doing it forever. While it beats, you have a place in my heart. I hope you stay that long. I love you. Casey.”
They sparked engagement rumors in March when Cowan was spotted wearing a large ring on her left ring finger while they were having a date night in Beverly Bills.
Affleck started dating Cowan shortly after he split from longtime girlfriend, actress Floriana Lima. He was also previously married to Summer Phoenix from 2006 to 2017. He and Phoenix divorced after he was accused of workplace sexual harassment in 2010.
Affleck settled two harassment suits out of court and publicly denied the claims, but he has admitted to “allowing people to behave unprofessionally” on a movie set.
