Drake's Toronto mansion was surrounded by police earlier today after a woman allegedly armed with a knife was arrested after trying to enter his residence.
Today (March 30), a woman reportedly attacked one of Drake's private security guards with a metal pipe after he attempted to prevent her from gaining access to the $150 million property in the Bridle Path area of Toronto. She was stopped near the gate before the attack. Along with a metal pipe, a knife was allegedly located as well. At 5:30 p.m., Toronto Police responded to the scene with seven police cars and a Toronto EMS vehicle.
Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington reported details of the incident as they unfolded, beginning around 5:46 p.m. "BREAKING- Large @TPSOperations presence at home on Bridle Path.

The person arrested was a woman who was reportedly armed with a knife. "BREAKING- Sources tell me a female has been taken into custody at @Drake mansion property and a knife has been located," the reporter tweeted.
"I am hearing a security guard for @Drake stopped the armed female suspect from getting on the Property," Warmington added. "She was stopped near the gate but allegedly one security person was struck with a pipe."

Drake has not commented on the situation via his social media platforms yet. He first purchased his Toronto mansion in 2018, for $6.7 million. The 34-year-old rapper gave fans an inside look at his pricey pad last year when he filmed his "Toosie Slide" video throughout the home, showing off everything from Andy Warhol’s Mao 94 painting to a Bösendorfer piano inscribed with Takashi Murakami’s skulls.
