Sandra Bullock had a scary conversation with a 911 dispatcher for 15 minutes while waiting for police to arrest the man who was stalking her.
When Sandra Bullock called police from her home back in June, she was panicked. She was home alone. She had heard a noise outside.
“I thought it was a wind blowing,” Bullock said. “Then I saw the person.”
That bit of conversation is what a judge heard as prosecutors laid out their evidence in a preliminary hearing intended to show that they have the goods on Joshua Corbett. Corbett is charged with stalking Sandra Bullock and breaking into her home that night in June. He also faces weapons charges for illegal firearms he possessed at his home.
The 911 tape is about 15 minutes long and reveals the fear the actress felt as she cowered in a safe-door protected closet in her bedroom.
“I’m in my closet. I have a safe door,” Sandra Bullock told the 911 dispatcher. “I’m locked in the closet right now.”
When police arrived, they found Corbett with a black notebook that contained a letter to Sandra bullock as well as notes about the security measures of her home.
“There is two large impervious gates that no one can open but you,” one officer read from the notebook before the judge. “I hope one day you open them to me.”
Sandra Bullock can be heard on the tape expressing concern that her security measures had been bypassed. She tried to open her front gates remotely using her phone so officers could get inside. But they would not open.
“Now my phone is not working so maybe they know how to override my system,” Sandra Bullock worried aloud.
An officer testified that, when Corbett was arrested, he addressed Sandra Bullock.
“He said, ‘I’m sorry. I love you Sandy,'” the officer told the judge.
