While you were sleeping: Sandra Bullock’s break-in nightmare

Sandra Bullock was the victim of a burglary Sunday morning — and the actress was asleep in her bed when it happened.

Sandra Bullock’s sense of peace and security was shattered over the weekend when a stalker managed to break into her home while she was asleep.

The actress was in her Los Angeles, California, home when the intruder was caught on her property about 6:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Police identified Joshua Corbett as the intruder. He was arrested without incident and booked on a residential burglary charge with bail set at $50,000.

Was Corbett’s motive robbery or something more nefarious? Two law enforcement officials close to the investigation told NBC News that the man was obsessed with the Gravity actress, kept a diary about her and was in possession of some of her personal items at the time of his arrest.

Bullock, rumored to be dating Chris Evans, was sleeping alone at the time of the incident, having celebrated her Decade of Hotness honor at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards the night before.

“I feel like I’m at my funeral. Decade of Hotness… My question was what decade? I have several under my belt. It should really be Decade of Hot Mess. That I can own, and I do that well, and I’m still convinced I’m up here because someone dropped out and they needed someone quickly, and we know I’m home on Saturdays,” she joked while accepting her antler statue.

“I’d like to thank the Guys Choice Awards for this: the horns. How many people hold this up and say, ‘I’m so horny!’ I’d like to thank you for this honor. This is an amazing slingshot for a 49-year-old. I’d like to thank every hairstylist and makeup artist for creating the illusion because I didn’t look like this a couple hours ago… I’m just one of the luckiest girls I know and three of the people I’m just so crazy about are right next to me, she added, referring to past co-stars Hugh Grant, Keanu Reeves and Matthew McConaughey, who each gave their own speeches honoring the actress.

The 2014 Guys’ Choice Awards airs on Spike TV on Wednesday, June 11.

Police are unsure how Corbett was able to access Bullock’s home. The actress was unhurt.
