The man who jumped over the wall of Halle's L.A. house twice has been identified as Richard Franco, and police confirm that the 'Frankie and Alice' actress has personally identified him.

After being left terrified for days by an unidentified man who jumped over a fence around her Hollywood home, can now breathe a sigh of relief. The "" actress' home intruder has finally been arrested on late Monday night, July 11.

Sergeant Hoops of the LAPD Hollywood Division told ET that the alleged stalker was busted at 11:15 P.M. in Halle's neighborhood. The police, additionally, confirmed that the 44-year-old actress has positively identified the suspect personally.

At the precinct, the LAPD identified the intruder as a 27-year-old Hispanic male named Richard Franco. He was booked for stalking on two felony counts. Bail has not yet been set, but authorities said that considering the severity of the charges, it is expected to be high.

Halle first had the unwelcome visitor, who lurked around her front lawn, on Saturday, July 9, but he escaped before the police could catch him. The Oscar winner got another visit from the intruder the next day. This time around, he hopped over the front fence at around 11 A.M. and stared at the actress through the kitchen window.
