Paris Hilton phoned police after seeing an armed bandit holding two knives and banging at her windows. According to a Twitter posting on her account, she said the following:
“So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him.”
She also posted photos on her account of police outside her house, presumably investigating. Police say they arrested a man in his 30s, according to the Toronto Sun.
It is not known if she was specifically targeted but according to TMZ, she saw the man in her security cameras and immediately phoned police.
Hilton’s publicist said in a statement, “Paris is naturally shaken by the events but is unharmed and well. She is very thankful to her security team and the police for their swift and diligent response.”
The Toronto Sun also reported that Hilton was later seen by a news helicopter emerging from her humble home in only a bedsheet or towel.
The LA Times is reporting that prosecutors are still considering what charges to bring against the man who was detained.
LAPD spokesman Richard French told the LA Times that the suspect, Nathan Lee Parada, 31, was booked on suspicion of attempted burglary for allegedly trying to enter Paris Hilton’s Mulholland Estates home.
The offense took place at 6 a.m. according to the LA Times, and the suspect was confronted by Hilton’s boyfriend. Thank god he was there!
