Paris Hilton's BF

Pulled Gun on Intruder

8/27/2010 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... the man who allegedly attempted to break into Paris Hilton's L.A. home this week was thwarted by Hilton's boyfriend ... who pulled a gun on the suspect before the dude could get inside.

Law enforcement sources confirm ... Hilton's BF -- Vegas nightclub kingpin Cy Waits -- told police that he and Paris heard loud banging noises coming from downstairs around 6:30 AM Tuesday ... so he grabbed his gun and went to check out the situation.

We're told Cy claims he spotted Nathan Parada peering through a window and carrying two knives -- a large kitchen knife and a buck hunting knife.

Cy immediately went outside -- with his weapon drawn -- and ordered Parada to drop the knives and lay on his stomach.  We're told Cy kept his gun pointed at Parada until cops arrived.

Law enforcement sources also tell us Parada told cops that he had purchased a Star Map on Hollywood Blvd. hours before the incident ... because he wanted to find out where Paris lived.

We're told Parada -- who was booked for felony burglary -- is currently in custody on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Sources close to Paris tell us ... ever since the incident, Hilton's security team has installed several new cameras around the home ... as well as infrared technology designed to spot intruders. Paris has also hired two new bodyguards to protect her around the clock.

According to our sources, Paris has told friends, "Thank God Cy was there, he saved my life."

Good goin' Cy! This sicko could have killed Paris had she been alone. Too many freaks out there today...they're not just satisfied with stealing anymore. The little weasel was quite surprised himself!

Parada eyes are spooky... he has those empty starring eyes. I bet he would have killed her if he had gotten in.

I'm not a fan of Paris but she is really lucky that her BF was there. This could have had a much more tragic ending.

Paparazzi. Don't like them until you need them for publicity.

Hilton is old tabloid news and no more money making photos. The paps are not chasing Hilton everywhere she goes anymore. Not for a long time. Hilton pulls this crap just to get herself back in the tabloids.

Yeah lets not over-look the fact that had her bf not had a firearm on him this story could have turned out with two or more people murdered. It is mega fortunate that this guy has the wisdom to understand that firearms can save lives.

@9 Janet

You are one sick twisted piece of crap! He was armed, is now on a psychatric evaluation hold, and was trying to break into her home and you think this was a staged publicity stunt?

I hope he knows where you live!

I just re-read the article. This loon had a map to her house. To think of what he might have done to her. I'm no Paris fan, but I wouldn't wish that on anyone. This freak needs to be put away. It's obvious what he wanted to do. Glad she's beefed up security. She can afford it, so good.
