Chris Rock caught a trespasser on the fire escape of his New York City apartment, a law enforcement source tells Fox News Digital.
The comedian told police “an unknown person went on to his fire escape.”
The source confirmed the person “didn’t attempt to gain entry, but Rock said he saw him filming.”
New York City Police Department officials confirmed an incident was reported on Sunday, June 4, at 8 p.m.
“The victim states he observed through his window an individual outside on the fire escape,” the NYPD report stated. “The man appeared to be filming.”
“When officers arrived, the individual had fled the scene.”

Smith infamously hit Rock across the face as Rock was presenting an award during the live telecast of the 94th Academy Awards on March 27, 2022, and made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Smith stormed the stage after Rock joked about her bald head in a reference to “G.I. Jane.” Pinkett Smith had previously discussed her struggles with alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss.
Rock tested out bits of his new act on the road last summer with Dave Chappelle and Kevin Hart.
