A recent incident involving comedian Chris Rock has come to light, revealing that he discovered a trespasser on the fire escape of his New York City apartment. According to a law enforcement source, the comedian reported to the police that an unknown individual had accessed his fire escape. While the trespasser did not attempt to enter the apartment, Rock claimed to have seen the person filming.
The New York City Police Department confirmed that an incident was reported on June 4 at 8 p.m. The law enforcement source stated that the perpetrator fled the scene in a white Mercedes.
The NYPD report mentioned that Rock observed an individual outside on the fire escape through his window and that the person appeared to be filming. However, by the time the officers arrived, the trespasser had already left.
Currently, no arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing. Chris Rock’s representatives have not yet provided a comment on the incident.
In addition to this recent trespassing incident, Chris Rock addressed another infamous event during his Netflix special aired in March. During the 94th Academy Awards, Rock was famously slapped by Will Smith after making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head in reference to the film “G.I. Jane.” Pinkett Smith had previously shared her experience with alopecia, an autoimmune disorder causing hair loss.
Last summer, Rock tested out comedy material during his road tour alongside Dave Chappelle and Kevin Hart, preparing for future performances and appearances.
