Casey Affleck's girlfriend, Caylee Cowan, was awaken in the middle of the night to a burglar standing over her, according to reports.
Caylee, 24, was alone in her Los Angeles home at 3 a.m. on Tuesday, June 21, when she opened her eyes and saw a man near her.
The "Sunrise in Heaven" star quickly screamed, which scared off the intruder. Caylee then called 911 and gave the dispatcher a description of the man. Police quickly located the suspect running down the street and arrested him. He was booked into jail on a burglary charge.
TMZ said the intruder rifled through Caylee's belongings before making his way to her room. Casey, 46, was not present at the time of the break-in.
It's unclear how the intruder got into the home, as there was no signs of forced entry. Caylee was physically unharmed.
The little-known actress and Oscar winning actor were first linked in November 2021, but they went official with their romance in January with a gushing post by Casey.
"A year ago, we met. A few months ago, I got smart. Thank God, it wasn't too late," he said. "On our first date, you carried firewood up, built a fire, and gave me a low eyelid look that was so strong I had to take a knee for a minute."
In the lengthy tribute, he added, "My girl, you make me a better man every day. You could push me and you could drag me and you could carry me, but instead you just walk with me and talk with me and make me laugh. You are a deep and tender woman with more girlfriend geem than anyone I ever met.I don't know what I did to deserve you, but I am determined to figure it out and keep doing it forever."
