NEW YORK, United States, Wednesday July 30, 2014 – Kevin Mcglynn, a 53-year-old homeless man has been arrested for stalking and harassing Barbadian pop princess Rihanna at her home in New York.

Mcglynn was held after allegedly being caught on surveillance video delivering sinister letters to the superstar’s plush pad on three separate occasions in July.

According to court documents, Mcglynn handed the letters to one of the singer’s assistants at her SoHo apartment block.

Sources indicate that the Diamonds girl was left terrified and fearing for her safety after the deliveries began at the upmarket building that has served as Rihanna’s home in the Big Apple since late last year.

Mcglynn reportedly visited the Unapologetic star’s building at 6:30 a.m. and again around midnight on July 8, returning around midday on July 11. He nevertheless remained at large until Thursday.

Lawmen located him after he virtually left his calling card at the 26-year-old’s residence by dropping his benefits card – complete with his name and address – at the posh SoHo building.

Mcglynn also allegedly sent at least four letters to the multiple Grammy award-winner’s palatial home in California.

According to a report in the New York Daily News, the criminal complaint says he “repeatedly called her a b***h,” and threatened to “bum in her apartment” in his messages.

At his arraignment hearing at Manhattan Criminal Court on Friday, Assistant District Attorney James Vinocur said: “The nature of these letters (is) confusing. They all do indicate a personal relationship, as I indicated before, that simply does not exist.”

Mcglynn, who has been busted at least a dozen times, four of which were for trespassing, also claimed that Rihanna, Jay Z and Kanye West had ripped off “my material.”

He also shouted “You are lying” at Judge Abraham Clott when he was told he would not be allowed to represent himself.

He was ordered held without bail.
