Kendall Jenner testified in court on Thursday, October 13, at the trial of her accused stalker, Shavaughn McKenzie. According to the Associated Press, the model, 20, described to the jury how she felt when she saw McKenzie outside of her Hollywood Hills home.

"I’ve never been so scared in my life,” Jenner told the jury. According to AP, the Estée Lauder spokeswoman kept her composure during the two hour–long testimony, during which McKenzie and his lawyer were present, and used her hands to illustrate how she made frantic phone calls to friends while waiting for authorities to arrive.

As previously reported, McKenzie, 25, was arrested outside of her home in August and charged with misdemeanor stalking and trespassing. Jenner said on Thursday that she first noticed the man parked outside of her home and that he somehow followed her into her gated driveway and banged on the window of her car after she pulled up to her house.

According to AP, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also told the court that she recognized McKenzie as the same man who previously confronted her twice at her condo in L.A.'s Westwood.

If convicted, McKenzie could face up to six months in jail. His lawyer argued in court that he suffers from a severe mental disorder and that he was unarmed at the time of the incident.

"I was terrified," Jenner told the jury. "I was literally traumatized.… It's definitely put me even more on edge. I definitely don't feel safe in my own house anymore."

Her testimony comes a little more than a week after older sister Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris on October 3.
