Update: The man arrested is the same trespasser arrested for breaking into Gomez’s home Sunday. Che Cruz spent two days in jail due to overcrowding, and upon release immediately returned to Gomez’s home on Friday – where he was later arrested for trespassing.
A male trespasser has been arrested after he was found at Selena Gomez’s new Calabasas, California, home on Friday morning.
According to TMZ, police descended on the five-bedroom, 7,200 sg, ft. mansion after a man jumped a fence at the former Disney star’s property and the incident was reported to cops as a burglary in a 911 call.
At yet, it’s not known if Gomez was at home was at home during the drama.

The celebrity gossip site adds that at first it was thought the man was a burglar but after he was detained and questioned, he was arrested for trespassing.
This is the third such incident for Selena this year, with this latest unwelcome intrusion taking place within days of the 21-year-old starlet settling into her newly-bought $3.1 million home.
Back in January, police arrested another man for trespassing at the Latina’s previous home in Tarzana, California. He was convicted in February and sentenced to 120 days in jail.
More recently, Che Cruz, a 20-year-old transient man, was arrested on Sunday, March 30, after he found in a guest house at Gomez’s Calabasas property by Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s deputies who were called out following a security alert.
E! News later reported Cruz was sentenced on Wednesday to 45 days (one month and 15 days) in county jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized entry of a dwelling house.
Cruz was also given three years’ probation, prohibited from possessing weapons, and was ordered to stay away from Selena – according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office E! added.
It was previously reported that Gomez was at her Calabasas home with a friend on Sunday when they heard a noise.
Before security could investigate, Cruz knocked at the door of the house and asked if the starlet was home. After the friend told Cruz she wasn’t around he left, but later ended up in a guest house where sheriff’s deputies reportedly found him in a bathroom.
The Spring Breakers star may well be looking heavenward of late given recent events.
As it turns out, Gomez has been ordered to testify at an April 23 deposition in a lawsuit filed against her on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber by paparazzo Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran who is suing Bieber in a civil assault and battery case launched last June.
Duran claims he was drop-kicked by Bieber in the parking lot of a Calabasas shopping mall during a confrontation with the then 18-year-old heartthrob in May 2012.
Gomez – who was on a date with the “Baby” singer at the time – will be deposed on April 23 and grilled by Duran’s lawyer (s) on what she allegedly saw, her relationship with Bieber and any other queries.
In addition, following Bieber’s now infamous appearance at a Miami deposition for a lawsuit filed by paparazzo Jeffrey Binion – who alleges the singer ordered his bodyguards to attack him after he was spotted taking photos last June — Selena is set to be deposed in the same suit.
Binion’s attorney, Mark DiCowden told Radar Online: “I will be serving Selena Gomez next week. She witnessed Justin Bieber attack a photographer back in 2012.”
Given Justin’s reputation, it might give those of ill-intent pause for thought before disturbing Gomez’s privacy and peace of mind.
