Halle Berry has been granted a restraining order against a man found on her property three times in recent days.

Judge Carol Boas Goodson from the Los Angeles Superior Court has issued a temporary order against 27-year-old Richard A. Franco to stay at least 100 yards away from the Oscar-winning actress and her three-year-old daughter Nahla at all times.

In court papers, Halle - who first spotted Richard at her property on Sunday (10.07.11) when he was standing on the other side of a glass door in her kitchen, but had previously jumped a wall at her home in Los Angeles on Saturday (09.07.11) when her manager scared him away - claimed she was "extremely" nervous about him getting so close to her.

She said: "This person has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have and I am extremely frightened of him and what he might do to me or those I love."

Richard - who has a history of violence and drug offences - was arrested on suspicion of stalking on Monday (12.07.11), and was found with a book with "nonsensical ramblings" and Halle's name in handwriting.

He is thought to be still in custody, with bail set at $150,000.
