Hausner is alleged to have tried to gain entry to Cooper's apartment on multiple occasions. There are additional accusations that he made a threatening phone call to the journalist.

He appeared before a judge at Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday (July 27) and was held on $75,000 (£48,949) bail, reports the New York Post.

Hausner - who is next expected in court on August 8 - has insisted that he is not guilty of the pending charges.

A spokesperson for Peabody, Emmy and GLAAD Media Award winner Cooper has not commented on the matter.
