    Meanwhile, police obtained a temporary restraining order preventing Sandrock from possessing guns.

    According to the document, Sandrock was wearing a mask and rubber gloves when he was taken into custody and told police he had driven from his home in Broomfield, Colorado, to see Swift.

    Sandrock told officers he owned three handguns and was on probation in Colorado for firing one, police said.

    A search of his car turned up a knife, rope, ammunition and more masks and gloves, according to the restraining order.

    Prescription medications, including oxycodone, were also found and Sandrock told arresting officers that he had depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and manic episodes, according to the document.

    The arrest followed the April 8 arrest of a homeless man on suspicion of trespassing after he tried to climb a wall at the same property and ignored warnings by security guards to leave.
