Supermodel Miranda Kerr's security guard was stabbed in the eye trying to fight off an intruder at her Malibu home here.
The man was attacked by an intruder trying to climb a fence to gain access to the property, where the model lives with her five-year-old son Flynn, at 11.10 a.m. on Friday, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Her security guard shot the intruder several times including once in the head. Both are receiving treatment in a Los Angeles hospital. The security guard was airlifted from the scene by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
He was stabbed below the eye but was seen walking on to the LA County Sheriff's Department chopper unaided after the attack.
He shot the intruder four times, LA County Sheriff's Office told DailyMail.com on Friday afternoon.
The spokesman said: "Deputies responded to a shots fired call in Malibu. They discovered a security guard had been involved in a physical altercation with an intruder. The guard was stabbed in the facial injury and he had minor injuries. He produced a handgun and shot the intruder three to four times in the face and torso. Neither the guard nor the intruder has life threatening injuries."
Police could not confirm whether there was anyone else in the property at the time. The intruder, the spokesman added, will face charges.
