    A Florida man is accused of breaking into Taylor Swift's New York City home and taking a nap. 

    Police sources tell News 4 the man also allegedly took a shower and disturbed the pop star's bed after climbing through a window at her SoHo townhouse Friday afternoon. He was asleep when police investigating the case found him. 

    The man, 22-year-old Roger Alvardo, was charged with stalking, burglary, criminal mischief and trespassing, according to the NYPD.

    According to the Daily News, which first reported the break-in, it wasn't Alvardo's first arrest at Swift's home. He was also reportedly arrested for trying to break into the Franklin Street townhouse with a shovel in February.

    Alvardo's arrest Friday marks the fourth time in three weeks a man had been cuffed at one of the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer's properties.

    On Wednesday, a Colorado man wearing a mask and rubber gloves was cuffed outside her home in Beverly Hills. In that instance, the man was arrested on stalking charges and had a knife, rope, ammunition, more masks and gloves and prescription drugs in the car. Swift wasn't home at the time.

    That incident 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.

    And on April 4, authorities said a Connecticut man with a crush on the singer allegedly robbed a bank and went to her Rhode Island mansion and threw the money he stole over a fence in an attempt to impress her.
