Actor Ashton Kutcher’s home was recently targeted in a burglary prank. Police rushed to his home after receiving a call from a woman, who claimed she was the victim of a violent home invasion robbery.

The alleged victim called 911 and said she had locked herself inside one of the bathrooms after three gun shots were fired and that “people were either injured or dead”. Three men were detained when the police arrived on the scene, but it is now being reported the suspects were workers who were renovating the property under Kutcher’s authorisation, reports tmz.com. There was no sign of the supposed victim and the authorities are aggressively looking for a culprit after ruling it a case of swatting, where someone falsely reports a serious crime. Singer-actor Miley Cyrus was the subject of a similar prank in August this year.
