The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has urged the 18-year-old to take out the injunction barring a male fan from coming inside her home, reports tmz.com.

The unnamed man was apprehended earlier this month after trying to get into the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star's property and was placed under a 72-hour hold.

He was later put under a second 72-hour hold after he escaped from a psychiatric ward and was recaptured by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies.

If he violates a restraining order he can be held for a longer period of time.

The man has turned up to Kylie's home at least 10 times and thinks he is "soulmates" with her.

Police said the intruder will be "watched more closely".
