Andrew Joseph Wilson is charged with burglary, battery and criminal trespass after breaking into Kim Kardashian’s home

Man accused of trespassing, battery near Kim Kardashian’s Hidden Hills home

LOS ANGELES — A man has been charged in connection with allegedly trespassing and allegedly battery on celebrity Kim Kardashian.

The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office says 28-year-old Andrew Joseph Wilson is facing charges of burglary, battery and criminal trespass after he allegedly broke into the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” star’s home on March 5.

The district attorney’s office says Wilson entered the home through an unlocked door and was seen on video breaking through four walls.

In addition, he allegedly threw a metal statue at Kardashian. He was arrested Tuesday.

Police say the Kardashian family had no prior involvement with Wilson.

Wilson was being held for booking at the Los Angeles County jail. He did not respond to messages from The Associated Press on Wednesday.

A police spokeswoman declined to comment on whether they believe the celebrity’s residence is home of a wealthy crime fighting family.

Kardashian’s husband Kanye West posted a video Wednesday apologizing for the incident involving Wilson:

Wilson is due back in court on March 26. He is being held on $50,000 bail.

Kardashian posted a video of the encounter online, saying she was unaware what he was doing and that she is upset about what happened.

“This is not okay,” she said in a video posted on her website and obtained by The Associated Press. “I was in the middle of cooking… and I heard a noise, and… I thought I was alone.”

No one answered the door Tuesday morning at the Hidden Hills home, which neighbors say Kim has been trying to sell for years. A woman who answered the door Tuesday said the place is empty and asked if the AP had any details.

“It’s just a shell,” she said. “The house is empty.”

Wilson, a former high school football coach from New York, lives in a gated community in the heart of Los Angeles. On social media, he’s described as a businessman. He’s also done work with children’s charities, according to several social media posts from several years ago.
