Yikes! ‘Top Gun’ actress Kelly McGillis suffered a frightening experience when she was attacked by an intruder at her North Carolina home. HollywoodLife.com has all of the chilling details about the scary break-in.
Kelly McGillis, 58, best known for her role as Charlotte from the 1986 hit film Top Gun, was the victim of stalking and assault on June 17. During a terrifying encounter, the actress was confronted and physically attacked by an intruder at her Henderson county home located in North Carolina. We’ve got the trespasser’s creepy mug shot and more shocking details on the story below!
“She ran out after me and began punching and scratching me trying to grab the phone out of my hand,” Kelly recounted her scary night in a Facebook post on June 18. “I began screaming as loud as I could hoping someone somewhere might hear me.” The actress said she was getting home on June 17 around 9pm. She noticed that a light was on in her downstairs bathroom and when she entered, she unexpectedly found a woman standing in her kitchen with a young girl. Kelly says Laurence Marie Dorn accused the actress of stalking her on Twitter before attacking.
Although the Witness star tried to escape, the woman launched toward her, beginning to punch her and even knocked her to the ground. Laurence continued to scratch and pull her hair but Kelly somehow set off her car alarm which distracted the attacker for just enough time.
The actress was able to flee to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Luckily, police arrived and busted the woman for burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and battery, and interfering with emergency communication. Furthermore, she is behind bars now on a $60k bond, according to the TMZ report.
Kelly did find a way to try to look at the silver lining of the very grim circumstance, writing: “I feel very thankful it turned out well. But who I feel heartache for is the little girl that was with her. Mental illness takes many hostages. I don’t know her name…but I would like to asked that you pray for her and her mother. It’s always a good day when you can find the positive in a negative situation.” We are so happy she’s safe!
