Attempted break-in at Paris' home

Paris Hilton has told of how she was woken by a man allegedly trying to break into her Los Angeles home.

The man, armed with two knives, was arrested at the scene, police said.

Paris posted a picture of the arrest on Twitter and said: "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]."

Police said he was held about 6.30am local time (2.30pm BST) on Tuesday but his name has not been released.

Police said the break-in was reported by telephone but did not know if it came from Paris or an alarm company.
