On Monday, it was revealed that Revenge actress Madeleine Stowe was the victim of an armed robbery back in September. Oh no!
Reportedly, the brunette beauty was asleep at home with her husband Brian Benben when they woke up to the noise of an intruder digging through their master bathroom. According to police documents, the naked 57-year-old got up to figure out what going on and discovered a man, who then pointed a gun at her neck. Eek!
The Last Of The Mohicans star told officers at the time that the culprit’s English wasn’t very good as he barked at her:
“I want all the valuable, I want something.”
Oof. Before the armed robber made his escape, Miz Stowe gave him around $75,000 in antique jewelry.
In a positive turn of events, the cops apparently caught the suspect (who has been identified as Walter Canizalez) in the act a handful of months later. On top of Madeleine’s heist, Walter is accused of robbing three other homes. Not to mention, Canizalez was caught wearing a Spiderman mask — which was a detail noted in the other robberies!
Currently the defendant faces 15 counts, including robbery and sexual battery charges. Yikes!
Nonetheless, we’re just happy that Madeleine wasn’t seriously injured during this terrifying ordeal.
