Cy Waits, Vegas night life impresario, pulled a gun on a knife-wielding intruder at Hilton’s Los Angeles home early Tuesday, – a law enforcement source reported the Daily News.
Waits forced the intruder, Nathan Parada, to drop two knives and lay down on his stomach until cops arrived a few minutes later, the source said.
“So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes,” the hotel heiress wrote on Twitter.
A prosecution source said Parada zeroed in on Hilton’s property in gated Mulholland Estates after buying a map of stars’ homes in Hollywood. – the prosecution source said.
“It’s very concerning. Very scary,” mom Kathy Hilton told The News after learning Parada targeted her daughter. “We’ve stepped up all our security.”
Parada was charged with felony burglary and held on $50,000 bail. The proceeding will begin on Friday.
“Parada has that mood problem – bipolar disorder. He’s very quiet and we don’t see him much,” – said his grandmother, Angie Parada, 74.
The socialite was the victim of another home invasion when a suspect in a hooded sweatshirt ransacked her Sherman Oaks house in December 2008 and made off with an estimated $2 million worth of property.
