    A man in New York City has been busted for allegedly stalking and harassing Rihanna at her SoHo apartment.

    According to the New York Daily News, Kevin McGlynn was caught on video surveillance three times this month delivering "unsettling" letters to one of Rihanna's employees. He was allegedly spotted there at 6:30 a.m. and again at midnight July 8, and came back July 11 at noon.

    During his third visit, he made the mistake of dropping his benefits card in her building, which helped cops track him down easily. In the letters, McGlynn "repeatedly called [Rihanna] a b--ch," and threatened to "bum (rush) in her apartment," his criminal complaint read, the site reported.

    McGlynn also allegedly sent at least four letters to Rihanna in California. During his arraignment, the New Yorker claimed she, Jay Z and Kanye ripped off "my material," among other things. The songstress was reportedly in "fear for her physical safety" upon hearing about the incidents.

    A source tells E! News McGlynn is a 53-year-old white male who was arrested Thursday at 6 p.m. and charged with menacing in 2nd degree, harassment in the 1st degree, stalking in the 4th degree and a hate crime.

    McGlynn, who has already racked up a string of trespassing arrests according to court documents, has been held without bail since his arraignment Friday evening.
