An Iowa man was arrested Saturday for allegedly stalking “Underworld” star Kate Beckinsale at Tampa Bay Comic Con.
Police have not released the identity of the woman, but TMZ reports Beckinsale postponed her appearance at the event due to an incident with a fan.
Terry Lee Repp, 45, was arrested Saturday morning at the Tampa Convention Center and charged with stalking.
Repp has had a history of following and harassing the victim, according to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
At an event in 2016, Repp was detained and escorted off the premises after stalking the victim in Houston. Repp also encountered the victim at an event in Salt Lake City, where he touched her back and said something about stabbing her.
Police say Repp’s actions have caused the victim “substantial emotional distress and caused her to fear for her safety.”
He was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on a $500 bond.
