Actress Ellen Page has turned to the police after receiving threatening messages via Twitter.com.
The Juno star has filed a complaint with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) after she was sent a series of menacing tweets in June (12).
LAPD authorities obtained a warrant forcing Twitter bosses to hand over information relating to two accounts believed to be behind the disturbing posts, which have since been taken down.
In one of the tweets, the user allegedly threatens to "murder Ellen Page" while another reportedly stated: "Ellen Page if you continue to date (actor) Alexander (Skarsgard) I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year... Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you're signing autographs."
According to TMZ.com, LAPD bosses were also on alert in June (12) after an unnamed caller phoned the Los Angeles Film Festival and told organisers of plans to harm Page.
