The hotel heiress called police yesterday, after a knife-weilding intruder tried to break in to her LA home
Paris Hilton was left ‘shaken’ yesterday, after knife-wielding intruder was caught trying to break into her LA home while she slept.
Police were called to Paris’s luxury residence around 6.30 in the morning, after a man was spotted trying to smash his way through a window, and the relieved star has praised the team of cops for their ‘swift and diligent response.’
Today, Paris’s spokesperson confirmed the incident, reassuring fans that, although shaken, she is ‘unharmed and well.
‘An armed man with two kitchen knives attempted to break into Paris Hilton’s home when she was sleeping,’ a statement read.
‘The intruder was attempting to break a window. Paris is shaken but is unharmed and well.
‘She is very thankful to her security team and the police for their swift and diligent response.’
Calmed by the police presence, the star snapped a picture of the intruder being handcuffed, and taken away by cops.
‘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 wrote, alongside the snap.
This is not the first time Paris has been troubled by a knife-wielding man. Just last year, the star was forced to hire extra security, after a stalker forced his way into her father’s office, claiming to be her fiancé.
‘I’ve had a lot of stalker incidents, and I usually can handle them,’ she revealed at the time.
‘But the scariest one was when a guy turned up at my dad’s office and said he was my fiancé . He forced his way inside and the cops discovered he had a knife on him. That was freaky.
‘Now I have a lot of security all the time so I feel safe. I guess that’s one of the things you have to learn to live with, but it’s still scary.’
