New York: Socialite Paris Hilton has hired two bodyguards to patrol her Los Angeles property around the clock, following a "very scary" home invasion by a man armed with two large knives.
Nathan Lee Parada, 31, is accused of attempting to break into Hilton`s mansion in August, and is facing criminal charges of theft.
"It’s scary someone comes into my home like that, where I’ve always felt so safe," The New York Post quoted Hilton as telling RadarOnline.
"I’ve really upped security, I’ve installed the best security systems available ... laser beams, cameras everywhere, I have two 24 hour bodyguards that are always on property, so that’s never going to happen again," she added.
Hilton`s boyfriend Cy Waits, 34, had to nail Parada down by putting a gun on the attacker until the police arrived.
"This crazy man with two huge knives was trying to bang through my windows and come in, God knows what he was going to do ... The cops took a little while to get there, so he (Waits) literally had to hold him with a gun down on the floor and get the knives away. It was like something out of a movie. He is definitely my hero", she said.
