A 41 year old man was apprehended outside the venue and taken into custody on Thursday (04Feb10), before facing questioning on Friday (05Feb10), according to Britain’s The Sun.

A source tells the newspaper, “Keira felt threatened by this guy who turned up a number of times and tried to speak to her. He did not make any specific threats to her but she was concerned enough to call the police.”
