Paris Hilton was awakened by a burglar holding 2 knives trying to get inside her home this morning, TMZ reports. The socialite was woken up by a racket the burglar was making to get inside her Los Angeles house.
Hilton tweeted at 7:19 a.m. Pacific Standard Time this morning:
“So scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting.”
She also tweeted a photo of the knife-wielding man being arrested by half a dozen cops, but his back was facing the camera as he stood handcuffed. The alleged burglar was wearing jeans and a long-sleeved gray shirt.
TMZ reported the man is in his 40s and was promptly arrested and taken to jail. Hilton saw the burglar on her security camera trying to break his way into her home after she heard a banging on the window. She didn’t know who the knife threatening intruder was, reportedly.
Hilton had a throng of support from fellow fans on Twitter. One read: “Bastard! Lesson…You Don’t Mess with Paris XO.”
Another wrote: “Paris, hire 6 puffed up huge aggressive blockers for extra security !!!!”
Paris Hilton experienced another burglary in December of 2008 when an intruder managed to nab $2 million in jewelry from her Hollywood Hills home. At that time, Hilton wasn’t in the house and didn’t face a man holding 2 knives!
