They’re taking action!
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd have decided to file a restraining order against the man who attempted to break into their Los Angeles home earlier this week.
Thankfully the couple were both fine, as was their son, Shai Aleksander, but they’re rightfully shaken up.
The new mom explained to People about what happened during the “civil dispute,” saying:
“It was so intense. We got a knock at the door around 2:30 in the morning saying that we needed to show ID because this man downstairs is saying we’re trespassing. We had to show ID and a rental agreement. We were half asleep and the police came in full force and we had to deal with the fact that they thought that we were trespassing in someone else’s home when we’ve been renting it for months. We did that and we actually found the man was up in our residence trying to get in.”
With “floor to ceiling glass windows all around the perimeter of our house” Peta said the unidentified man “could see right into our house and he was yelling at Maks and me saying that we had changed the locks on him — that it was his house”.
Wow. Well, it’s no hard to see why both Dancing With The Stars pros wouldn’t want to take any chances:
“It was really scary. We’re just so fortunate he didn’t break in. He was taken away but not arrested… We’re actually getting a restraining order against him.”
Peta also added she’s grateful their doors were locked at the time:
“If my mother-in-law hadn’t locked the door at 1:30 a.m., he would have been inside the house and that was the scariest thing for me, with Shai in the home. I said, ‘We’re not playing any games. We’re getting a restraining order.'”
They should feel safe in their own home!
Let’s hope the family gets their restraining order so they never have to worry again.
