Mila Kunis Stalker Arrest; The Inside Scoop From A Cop Involved

(FOX 11 / CNS) A man who was convicted of stalking actress Mila Kunis and recently escaped from a Pomona mental health facility was recaptured Wednesday.

From Hal Eisner:

Mila Kunis can relax. Her stalker is behind bars. 30-year-old Stuart Lynn Dale was arrested Wednesday, four days after he escaped from a Pomona Mental Health Facility, by wiggling through a bathroom window.

The Santa Monica Police Officer involved in the arrest tells FOX 11 News he was called to a carport by this alley for a loitering call. When he got here he found three men. One was drinking a beer. Another had his head down. The officer says, when he started talking to the three men he fixated on the one with the beer and then, all of a sudden, a Sheriffs Undercover Unit came by asked the officer if he had seen the man they were looking for. He looked at the picture and told them it was the man with his head down. When asked, the officer says, Dunn identified himself and he was arrested.

Reaver Bingham is the Deputy Chief of the LA County Probation Department. He told reporters, "We're very glad we were able to take him into custody. He was fixated on Miss Mila Kunis... so we treated him as very dangerous and thus the efforts to work around the clock to bring him into custody."

Bingham says he expects Dunn will be in court before the end of the week.

Stuart Lynn Dunn, 30, was arrested around 10:30 a.m. in an alley near 1100 block of Sixth Street in Santa Monica, according to Nicole Nishida of the Sheriff's Department.

Dunn slipped away from the Olive Vista Behavioral Health Center in Pomona Saturday night, according to the sheriff's Major Crimes Bureau.

Sheriff's officials described him as a dangerous fugitive. Details of what led to his arrest were not immediately available.

Dunn, who was arrested multiple times on suspicion of stalking Kunis, pleaded no contest in January of 2013 to breaking into a vacant condo owned by the actress.

Kunis, 31, is best known for her role in the sitcom "That '70s Show," which ran on Fox from 1998-2006. She was nominated for a supporting-actress Golden Globe for her role in the film "Black Swan."

The actress, who also provides the voice of Meg on Fox's animated series "Family Guy," is engaged to her "That '70s Show" co-star Ashton Kutcher.

She gave birth to a daughter in October.

From Phil Shuman:

The Probation Department, the Sheriff's Department, the Police Departments.. pretty much all of law enforcement in Southern California is looking for a dangerous man named Stuart Dunn. He escaped from a ''locked'' mental health facility in Pomona Saturday by breaking an unbarred window, squeezing through it, and apparently climbing over an unguarded and unmonitored chain link fence.

He was in this facility for violating probation after being released from prison for stalking 31-year-old actress Mila Kunis. Kunis has been stalked by this man for years, at one point he even broke into a vacant condo she had recently lived in. Terrifying would certainly be a word to describe how she must be feeling, though she has chosen, so far, through her representatives, to stay silent on Dunn's escape. Every celebrity is vulnerable in this day and age, where social media fosters a mistaken impression of closeness to some who's minds might be twisted in some obsessive way. Kunis, Sandra Bullock, Chris Rock, Selena Gomez, just some of the recent A list stars who've been victimized by stalkers. Being famous has many fabulous rewards and many intrusive costs, this shouldn't have to be one of them.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Martin Rodriguez tells news media outlets that Stuart Lynn Dunn disappeared Saturday night from the Olive Vista Behavioral Health Center in Pomona.

Rodriguez says deputies and the county's Probation Department are searching for Dunn, who pleaded no contest to stalking the "Black Swan" and "That '70s Show" actress in January 2013.

He has been arrested on suspicion of breaking into Kunis' empty condominium and waiting outside her gym, violating a restraining order.

Dunn was sentenced to six months of rehabilitation and five years of probation and ordered to stay away from the actress and her representatives for 10 years.
