Anita Baker Needs Security -- Or a Fence to Keep Stalkers, Strangers Away

For the second time in months, legendary singer Anita Baker called police to report someone trespassing on her property. About 11am on Monday, she called 911 after a woman peeked in a window, then walked over to the back door and tried to enter the Grammy-Award winner's home in Grosse Pointe, Michigan (a beautiful and well-to-do suburb just seven miles from Detroit). The woman was unable to enter the home and then left in a white Jeep, which had been parked in the street outside Anita's home. Anita was able to write down the woman's license plate and called police. Investigators tracked the vehicle to a 45-year old woman. The woman was not arrested. She told police she was part of a cleaning crew that mistook Anita's home for the one they were supposed to be servicing. Her story checked out: She showed police the address she was supposed to be at on her car GPS. It was two doors down. Last October, 24-year-old Dwon Darnell Thompson was charged with stalking and trespassing after he showed up at Anita's home at 3am and refused to leave and banged repeatedly on her front door while singing to her for at least 20 minutes. Craziness! Anita told police Dwon was harassing her for about three months. She first saw him pacing in front of her home on the street and then he's followed her around repeatedly while she's running errands around town, telling everyone who are helping her to tell her that he wants to sing for her. He pleaded no-contest and was sentenced to two years probation, community service, complete psychological treatment and pay $925 in various fees and, of course, ordered to stay he hell away from Anita.
