Intruder Detained at Paris Hilton's Home

10/12/2010 7:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops have just detained a man at Paris Hilton's L.A. area home -- after the guy allegedly snuck past a guard gate and knocked on her front door ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us private security immediately sprung into action -- and tried to apprehend the man, who was riding a bike. We're told the man tried to put up a fight, but to no avail.

The security officers were able to physically restrain the man until LAPD officers arrived on scene and took him into custody.  The suspect was transported to a nearby police station for questioning.

Hilton had to deal with another scary situation at her home back in August -- when a man carrying knives allegedly tried to break into her home. Her BF pulled a gun on the suspect before anything happened.

No word if the two incidents are connected.

UPDATE:  We've learned the suspect is James Rainford.  He's being held on $20,000 bail.  He's been booked on battery charges.

Paris Hilton spends enough of her time and money on charities.
She does not need any poster to tell her how to spend her money.
What have YOU done for charity lately?

She probably wasn't even home. What is WRONG with people these days that they can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality????

Paris is becoming mega rich and mega famous. You can tell by how many idiots try to get close to her house. That's what always happened to Madonna too.

There is a subculture of mentally deranged persons in the US. When they are not posting on this site, they are out stalking celebs.

With almost 3 million followers, Paris Hilton unfortunately attracts some crazies just like any other super celeb.

Interesting.
A number of posters on TMZ seem to have criminal mindsets themselves.

Encouraging people with mental or criminal propensities to hurt a celebrity goes way beyond having a little fun with making smart-alecky remarks on a gossip site.

Speaking of RETARDS! anyone who defends someone advocating throwing gas on anyone and burning them to death is a really despicable, low life, s*** bag!

You nearly ALL make perfect sense! This useless waste of air has no redeeming qualities and yet it seems there is a constant stream of "intruders" making their way to her like a line of soldier ants attacking. If only it WAS! What boggles MY mind is how she manages to keep finding guys that are willing to screw her in spite of being photographed carrying a tube of Valtrex! I wonder how many and how many and how many she has managed to infect with the chain of second and third and fourth generation screws by now? Herpes is the gift that keeps on giving!

Can you tell us what valtrex is used for among the hollywood and model types beside herpes?

It's a common problem among those who are in front of the camera all the time.

I agree with the lonely guy thing. Also that she has nothing worthwhile except being worth millions. Seems that bought some excellent security in this case.
