Police arrested a man after an alleged attempted burglary at Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass’ residence Sunday.

Ephraim Matthew Hunter, 29, faced arrest and charges of burglary for allegedly breaking into Bass’s residence, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) wrote on X. The suspect allegedly entered the home of the mayor by smashing a window, police said. At the time of the incident, Bass and her family were inside the home, according to law enforcement, though it’s unknown if she met the alleged intruder.

“Around 6:40 AM this morning an individual smashed a window to gain entry into the Getty House while occupied,” the LAPD alleged.

Hunter is currently detained with bail set at $100,000, CBS News reported. Officials have reportedly not yet confirmed if Hunter, the accused, has a lawyer. No one was injured during the alleged break-in, the LAPD wrote. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is actively investigating the circumstances surrounding the alleged break-in.
