Intruder arrested at Paris Hilton's gated L.A. residence

October 12, 2010 |  4:34 pm

Private security guards for Paris Hilton made a citizen's arrest of a man who showed up unannounced Tuesday afternoon at the socialite's residence.

The incident was reported around 12:15 p.m. at the actress' home in the gated Mulholland Estates.

The man, who was not immediately identified, rode his bicycle past a security checkpoint at the entrance to the gated community. He then went to Hilton's residence and began pounding on the door. He ignored security guards' commands to stop and resisted their efforts to control him.

Los Angeles police were called and the man was later booked at the Van Nuys station on suspicion of battery on a security guard.

This is the second incident in recent months involving an intruder targeting Hilton.

In August, a man was arrested after showing up at Hilton's residence with two knives and pounding on the front door.

Nathan Lee Parada, 31, of Redlands has pleaded not guilty in that case to a single felony count of attempted residential burglary.

At the time, Hilton posted a message on Twitter alleging that a man with two large knives was trying to break in. She posted a photo showing the alleged suspect in handcuffs with his back to the camera.

"So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes," Hilton tweeted.
