An Australian man was charged with mayhem and attempted murder of a security guard after attacking him at supermodel Miranda Kerr‘s home on Oct. 14, PEOPLE confirms.

Shaun Anthony Haywood faces one felony count each of attempted willful, deliberate and premeditated murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon.

Haywood’s arraignment was scheduled on Tuesday at the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Van Nuys, California.

On Friday, Oct. 14, Haywood allegedly broke into Kerr’s Malibu property by hopping the fence of the 33-year-old’s California property.

When the security guard on duty found him, Haywood attacked by slashing the guard’s face with a knife. The altercation took place on the property but outside the home, according to authorities.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told PEOPLE after the incident occurred that the guard “drew a weapon and fired three to four rounds, hitting the suspect in the face and upper torso area.”

Bail for Haywood is recommended at more than $1 million. If he’s convicted, he’ll face a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison. It is unclear what it has plead.

Kerr, who shares a 5-year-old son with ex-husband Orlando Bloom, was not at her home at the time of the incident, but she recently opened up about her beloved Malibu mansion.

She told Harper’s Bazaar in its September issue, “I knew that this house was it at first sight. It needed a lot of work, but it had a great view.”
