Solomita said that he ‘called the police’ and the woman ‘was apprehended and arrested.’
Solomita said that he, Marbles and the family dogs were all safe in the wake of the scary incident, which was the latest involving the woman who attempted to break in.
‘While this person is a complete stranger to me, they have been harassing me at my home throughout the last 2 months,’ he said.
Solomita said that he sought to keep the issue private out of concern ‘for safety reasons,’ but he decided to go public with it amid hearing that a news outlet was going to report the story.

Marbles, a Rochester, New York native whose real name is Jenna Mourey, has not made any public statements about the incident.
Solomita last week took to Instagram to reveal that he and Marbles – who had dated since 2013 and revealed they were engaged last year – had wed.
He posted a series of shots of the pair captioned ‘married otters <3’ with a series of images of the couple together, as she wore a white wedding dress.
Solomita is best known for his content creation on platform including Twitch and YouTube.
Marbles ceased posting content on YouTube in 2020 amid a controversy over past content that featured blackface as well as racially and sexually charged jokes.
Marbles, who had millions of followers with comedic content and lifestyle clips, said she was sorry over her ‘shameful’ past behavior and was ceasing her activity on the platform.
‘I just want to make sure the things I’m putting in the world aren’t hurting anyone … so I need to be done with this channel, for now or for forever,’ Marbles said at the time.
