The home of Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves has reportedly been targeted by a team of burglars donning ski masks.
According to reports, the John Wick star, 59, had his house broken into early on Tuesday morning – a window was smashed and a firearm was stolen.
The frightening raid is said to have occurred just hours after police were called to the property following anonymous reports of a trespasser lurking on nearby grounds.
While an initial inspection didn’t reveal any foul play, police in Los Angeles were called back to the house after it had been broken into.
As more information is revealed, fans were relieved to find out that the Matrix franchise star was not at home when the burglary occurred.
TMZ has also reported that the burglars were spotted on security cameras wearing ski masks to cover their faces, with police still surveying footage.

Had Keanu been home, it wouldn’t have been the first occasion that he’d come face to face with an intruder, with a similar incident occurring in 2014.
That year, the actor’s home was invaded twice in three days while Keanu was home – a woman ‘acting erratically’ was escorted out by authorities.
Later that same year he was forced to take out a restraining order against a woman who was allegedly found swimming naked in his pool.

Earlier this year, the Toy Story 4 star was granted a restraining order after a trespasser had been ‘sleeping in the back garden’ of his California home.
Keanu commented at the time that the alleged incidents at his home had caused him to be ‘substantially alarmed, annoyed, and distressed’.
The Press Association obtained documents that claimed a Mr. Dixon, 38, had visited Keanu’s LA property six times – once sleeping in the back garden.
Elsewhere in Hollywood this week, actress Sofia Vergara was granted a restraining order against a man allegedly claiming to have a ‘romantic and familial relationship’ with her and her son.
The Modern Family star, 51, requested protection for herself and her son, Manolo, 32, after the man was reported to have climbed through hills and woodland to bypass security and enter her property.
