Bella Hadid had a terrifying incident happen to her, but she took matters into her own hands. A 37-year-old man was arrested outside of her New York City home after he was allegedly seen standing near her apartment building on Thursday, according to multiple reports. 


The 21-year-old model didn't waste any time and quickly called the New York City Police Department to report a man had been stalking and harassing her between December 17, 2017, and Feb. 7.

[Fame] gets really overwhelming. You feel really overexposed and you dont want to see anybody... I just want to be in my apartment alone and kind of retreat and be centered again.

Ryan S. Perez was arrested Thursday at around 9:35 p.m. after Hadid told police he had left “numerous unwanted threatening messages to her through social media, according to People. 


Perez was charged with aggravated harassment and stalking. The investigation is ongoing, and it is unclear if he is still in custody.
