HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) — Police have arrested a man they say broke into a home in the Kennedy compound once owned by John F. Kennedy and told investigators he was looking for singer Katy Perry.

Police in Barnstable, Massachusetts, responded to the home in Hyannis Port at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after getting a call from a Kennedy family member who said a strange man picked up the phone at the home and he was concerned about the well-being of his teenage son.

Police say they located 53-year-old James Lacroix in the kitchen of the home.

Neighbors tell police he may have been at the home for three hours.

Lacroix was charged with breaking and entering and was held overnight by police pending arraignment Wednesday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
