TRIBECA, Manhattan -- A man described by police as emotionally disturbed was detained outside Taylor Swift's home in Manhattan.

Authorities say the unidentified man was spotted on the Franklin Street near the pop star's Tribeca apartment by her security guards.

Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, he repeatedly rang the doorbell of Swift's building. He was spotted by security and the 25-year-old was taken into custody outside the building.

The man was taken to Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital for evaluation.

He was previously arrested in 2013 while outside her Watch Hill, R.I., home.

There have been no arrests in this incidence. It's not clear if the man made any threats.

Police said Swift was not home at the time.
