LONDON (AP) -- A British newspaper says singing sensation Susan Boyle was surprised by an intruder as she returned from recording a charity single for Haiti.
The Sun tabloid says Boyle, who shot to stardom on the back of her appearance on "Britain's Got Talent" last spring, ran into the man as she returned to her home in the small Scottish village of Blackburn.

Local police did not directly confirm the report, but when asked about Boyle they said that they were called to Blackburn Tuesday night "following reports of a disturbance."
Police said Wednesday that the unidentified man was detained and but has since been released. A representative for the singer could not immediately be reached.
