Paris:

Knife-Wielding Man

Tried to Enter My Home

8/24/2010 11:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops arrived at Paris Hilton's L.A. area home this morning after she claims a man packing "2 big knifes" tried to break into her house ... this according to Paris' Twitter page.

Moments ago, Hilton posted this photo of cops at her home -- and included the following message: "So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes [sic]. Cops are here arresting him."

Law enforcement confirms that a man in his 40s was arrested at Hilton's home around 6:30 AM. He was hauled off to a local jail. 

Paris told police the man was banging on the windows of the home -- but never actually entered the place.

Sources close to Paris tell us Hilton saw the man on her security cameras ... and called police instantly. Paris was told the man was considered "armed and dangerous" -- and that she was "lucky" the guy didn't get inside. 

We're told Paris didn't know the man -- and it's unclear if the guy targeted her or if it was a random incident.

It wasn't her he wanted, she's to used. The jewels and cash in the house would be a better bet.

Come on guys. Stop with the harsh comments. It's never funny when a guy with knives comes to your window regardless. It could have been your sister or your mom. So stop it.

Wonky McValtrex has missed the paparazzi. She's doing whatever she can to get the cameras focused on her again.

I'm surprised the dumpy got close to spelling it right. She's not that bright.
