John Cusack Intruder Arrested At Malibu Home

John Cusack Intruder Arrested At Malibu HomeA woman with a serious thing for John Cusack got busted at the star’s home after allegedly making multiple attempts to enter his home Tuesday evening … TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources … the woman tried to get in through a window at Cusack’s Malibu estate, but failed. We’re told a short time later Cusack’s security caught her scaling a fence on the grounds … and detained her until L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived.

Deputies arrested 45-year-old Elizabeth Pahlke, and booked her for felony stalking and burglary.

Now here’s the twist … we’re told Pahlke has a history with Cusack … and in fact, his security team had served her with a restraining order earlier on Tuesday. It’s unclear at this point what prompted the restraining order.

Our sources say Pahlke made a beeline for Cusack’s home some time after receiving the document.

She is currently being held on $150,000 bail.

We’re told Cusack was not home when the madness all went down.

Also, Pahlke was not holding a boombox over her head when she got busted.

That would’ve been way creepier.
