The New York City Police Department (NYPD) arrested a 30-year-old woman after she allegedly broke into Robert DeNiro’s home at around 3:30 a.m. Monday and attempted to steal Christmas gifts from underneath his tree.

DeNiro was inside his New York home at the time, and caught the female robber in the act as she allegedly tried to steal the presents under his tree, according to TMZ. DeNiro’s family was also at home when the reported incident transpired. DeNiro confronted the woman and phoned the police for assistance, TMZ continued.

The NYPD said the woman broke in through DeNiro’s door and snuck inside, according to TMZ. Police recognized the alleged perpetrator when they arrived on the scene. She had previously been arrested for similar crimes and was known to case homes before breaking into them, TMZ reported.

The NYPD brought the woman into custody before she could steal the gifts from the famous actor’s home, according to TMZ. (RELATED: REPORT: Famous Rapper’s LA Home Robbed)
