Former Revenge star Madeleine Stowe was awarded a protective order against a man who burglarized her home late last year, PEOPLE confirms.

In documents obtained by PEOPLE from Jan. 8th, Walter Canizalez is accused of multiple felony and misdemeanor counts of robbery, burglary and trespassing, among other things, including sexual battery.

Canizalez pleaded not guilty to all charges.

According to TMZ, the intrusion occurred when Stowe, 57, was asleep with her husband, actor Brian Benben, 59, when she heard noises coming from the couple’s master bathroom.

Getting out of bed to see what the sound was, Stowe – who was naked at the time – was reportedly confronted by a Latino intruder who then aimed a handgun at her neck, as he allegedly demanded in broken English, “I want all the valuable, I want something.”

When reporting the incident to police, Stowe said that she gave the man her collection of antique jewelry worth about $75,000, TMZ reports.

Canizalez was reportedly arrested by authorities months later during another alleged burglary.
