LOS ANGELES – A petrified Sandra Bullock made a desperate 911 call from inside a cupboard after a stalker broke into her mansion with a love letter.
The Hollywood actress had to flee into a closet with a “safe door” after Joshua Corbett, 39, broke in on 8 June last year.
A terrified Sandra Bullock feared for her life as she came face-to-face with her alleged stalker … and an L.A. courtroom heard it all unfold Thursday as prosecutors played the disturbing 911 audio in court.
The jury heard the frantic call Bullock made to police as she hid in her closet from the man she claims stalked her and broke into her home. During the call, Sandra says she saw “the guy go upstairs into my attic.”
A clearly terrified Sandra wonders how long it will be before officers arrive … asking the operator, “Are they close?”
As we previously reported … in June 2014, Joshua Corbett was charged with forcing his way into Bullock’s house while she was inside … cops later found an extensive weapons arsenal at his home that included assault rifles and machine guns.
Corbett was handcuffed in court while the tape was played.
“I thought it was a wind blowing,” Bullock said. “Then I saw the person.”
He’s facing 19 felony counts including first degree burglary, stalking, and possession of a machine gun.
His Defence lawyer argued that Corbett should have his stalking and burglary charges quashed as he was suffering from a delusion that he was married to Bullock and claimed he was not wanting to hurt her.
“The love letter that Corbett carried with him professed nothing but love and admiration,” Paul Takakjian said. “There is nothing in there about harming her. The people are trying to make more of the case than there is.”
Corbett appeared at Ms Bullock’s house three nights in a row and had broken into the home in the middle of the night, deputy district attorney Wendy Segall said.
“It’s clear that he was stalking her repeatedly and maliciously,” she said. “There is not a more clear-cut case of stalking than this one.”
Corbett pled not guilty and bail was set at $2.2 mil.
