MANHATTAN — Police and bounty hunters brought relief to Ivanka Trump Friday morning when her alleged stalker was apprehended in Los Angeles, the New York Post reported.
The suspect, Justin Massler, who suffers from schizophrenia, is accused of harassing a pregnant Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, through a series of Twitter messages and emails, according to the Post.
In recent weeks, Kushner's behavior has grown increasingly disturbing, a source told the Post. He has now attempted to contact Trump through an extended network including her friends and brothers and Kushner's colleagues at the New York Observer, which he owns.
"I think he's basically reached out to everyone on the masthead of the Observer," the source told the Post.
In some of his messages, including Massler's own YouTube videos, he makes repeated references to aliens and abduction.
"A lot of people like don't really understand what went down," Massler said in a Feb. 10 upload. "Basically sort of like aliens made me stalk her. And I'm not lying."
Massler had been on the run since missing a Feb. 4 court date at Manhattan Criminal Court, according to the Post.
