The guard who was stabbed was airlifted to a hospital for treatment according to a tweet from the Special Enforcement Bureau, a division of the L.A. County Sheriff's department.

Kerr, 33, who has a 5-year-old son with actor Orlando Bloom, was not home at the time. She purchased the home in 2014 following her split from the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
