The girlfriend of Hollywood star Casey Affleck was left shaken after waking to find an intruder inside her bedroom.
Actress Caylee Cowan feared for her life when she found the intruder standing by her bed inside the LA home she shares with the actor.
According to TMZ, the 24-year-old was by herself inside the house when she spotted the man standing just meters away in the early hours of Tuesday morning, local time.

The cops hit the scene to find a man Cowan had described to them running down the street, and they proceeded to arrest the suspect and book him for burglary as they allegedly found some of Cowan’s belonging in his possession.

“That’s so great because it makes it a lot easier to have someone to hold your hand, be there with you and be consistent through all the ups and downs of this career. It’s so nice because he’s done this before and he understands what it’s all about.”
Prior to Cowan, Affleck was married to Summer Phoenix, 43 – Joaquin Phoenix‘s younger sister. Their marriage ended in 2017 after nine years and two sons: Indiana, 18, and Atticus, 14.
