An Australian man has been charged for attempted murder of a security guard on the grounds of Miranda Kerr's home in Malibu, Los Angeles.

Shaun Anthony Haywood, 29, had slashed the security guard in the face with a knife after breaking into the Australian model's compound on 14 October to deliver a letter, according to prosecutors. He had allegedly seized the knife from the armed guard when confronted, and was then shot by the guard after refusing to back down. Both were hospitalised after the altercation, but neither sustained life threatening injuries.

Miranda lives with her and ex-husband Orlando Bloom's 5-year-old son Flynn; neither were at home during the incident.

Haywood faces a possible life sentence for wilful, deliberate and premeditated attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon. The Los Angeles county district attorney's office said that bail is being recommended at more than USD 1 million.

Miranda bought her Malibu home in 2014, after she and Orlando split up in 2013. She is now engaged to Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel.
