'Knifeman' denies Paris Hilton burglary bid

A man accused of showing up at Paris Hilton’s house wielding two knives pleaded not guilty to attempted burglary.

Nathan Parada, who entered the plea in a Los Angeles court yesterday, was arrested on August 24 outside the socialite’s house.

Hilton was at home when Parada allegedly banged on windows. She posted a photo of his arrest on her Twitter feed and described the incident as “scary”.

The heiress was arrested later in the week in Las Vegas on suspicion of carrying cocaine, which she told police was not hers.

Parada is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on September 15.
