Chances are, you’ve had a better morning than Paris Hilton, who awoke Tuesday to find a knife-wielding man attempting to enter her home in Los Angeles. She called police and the unidentified intruder was arrested. The socialite alerted her followers on Twitter about the near break-in and posted a photo of the arrest in her courtyard.
“So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes,” she said. “Cops are here arresting [him].” The incident occurred at 6 a.m. when police say the man approached Hilton’s house with a pair of knives and began pounding on the windows. Sources tell TMZ that Hilton spotted the man on her security cameras and called 911 immediately. The Los Angeles Times is reporting that a male friend of Hilton’s then confronted the intruder before police arrived and made the arrest around 6:30 a.m.
Police have not released the name of the man in custody and are investigating whether he was there to rob Hilton.
Hilton’s rep released a statement saying, “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.”
