Police in Manhattan Beach, California, have arrested a Russian teenager for allegedly stalking 19-year-old singer-actress Hilary Duff.

Maksim Myaskovskiy is alleged to have threatened to kill Duff. He was taken into custody on charges of stalking and making criminal threats, and is now being held on a $200,000 bail.

The young Russian is reported to have told a private investigator on Friday that he planned to murder Hilary Duff at a public event on Sunday.

On Oct. 12 Duff obtained a restraining order against the 18-year-old. In the court documents it was alleged that he had tried to contact Duff by visiting her neighborhood and the homes of her mother and boyfriend.

The documents also allege that Myaskovskiy had arrived to live in the U.S. with the sole purpose of becoming romantically involved with Duff.

Duff’s boyfriend, 27-year-old Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, was reportedly described by Myaskovskiy as standing “in their way.”
