TAYLOR Swift’s stalker has been nicked after breaking into the star’s home by smashing a window with a brick – just hours after she revealed she carries stab bandages everywhere.
Obsessed Roger Alvarado, 23, had just been released from jail for breaking and entering her house in April last year.

Stalker Alvarado climbed a ladder to the second-floor window of her townhouse in Manhattan before throwing the brick through the window at around 2.30am, according to an NYPD spokeswoman.
The shocking incident comes just hours after Taylor penned an essay for Elle Magazine, saying that she has been “terrified” to go on tour since the Manchester Arena bombing and the Vegas concert shooting.
She wrote: “I was completely terrified to go on tour this time because I didn’t know how we were going to keep 3 million fans save over seven months.
SLEPT IN HER BED
“My fear of violence has continued into my personal life.
“I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds.”
“You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things.”
Luckily for Swifty, the luxury pad was being renovated and no one was inside, although an alarm was tripped, alerting officers.
He was arrested on suspicion of burglary, criminal contempt, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools, police said.
I’m also blocking out anyone who might feel the need to tell me to “go die in a hole ho” while I’m having my coffee at nine in the morning.

Alvarado was released in February 5 after he served a six month sentence for breaking into her New York home and getting into her bed.
Authorities were called at 12.30am in April last year to the brownstone townhouse in SoHo, lower Manhattan and discovered a ladder near a broken window at the singer’s home.
Police said they discovered 22-year-old Roger Alvarado sleeping in her bed.
Swift was not in the property she only bought a few months ago.
Alvarado is also said to have taken a shower in the apartment before falling asleep.
He has been charged with stalking and burglary, among other crimes, according to the authorities.
The bombing at Manchester Arena on May 22 killed a total of 23 people and was the deadliest terror attack in Britain since the London bombings in 2005.
Taylor subsequently used facial recognition tech at her Reputation Tour shows last year to secretly scan concert goers in order to identify whether any of her known stalkers were in the crowd.
Worth an estimated £243million, the Bad Blood singer said she can no longer cope with the stress of the horrifying threats she is bombarded with online.

She explained: “Social media can be great, but it can also inundate your brain with images of what you aren’t, how you’re failing, or who is in a cooler locale than you at any given moment.
“One thing I do to lessen this weird insecurity laser beam is to turn off comments.
“I’m also blocking out anyone who might feel the need to tell me to “go die in a hole ho” while I’m having my coffee at nine in the morning.
