Us Magazine reports that the police has taken into custody James Rainford, the stalker of Paris Hilton, who was caught peeking inside her Malibu two story home on Monday.
James Rainford, who is 30 years old, “was hanging around on the beach while Paris was inside”, in the hours of the afternoon, according to a witness. Someone recognized him as being the man who had given her trouble in the past and the cops arrived pretty quickly,” the witness told Daily Mail.
The police department was called and informed about “suspicious person standing on the beach” . The person who called saw the man standing on the beach and keeping a eye of the Hilton’s home. He (or she) thought he recognized the man from the TV, as the same person who attacked Paris’s ex boyfriend, Cy Waits, in front of a Los Angeles courtroom. Officers from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department arrested the man around 4:30 pm. Witnesses watched while he was handcuffed. “Deputies identified the suspect as James Rainford and determined a valid restraining order prohibiting him from being within 200 yards of Miss Hilton or her residence was in effect” said the statement that was released by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
In April 2010 James Rainford attacked Cy Waits and was sentenced to 227 days in prison. He was recently released after spending only 24 days behind bars. Rainford pleaded no contest after being charged for stalking Paris Hilton at her Hollywood Hills home, three months earlier. The trespassing case led to a sentence of three years probation and the interdiction of getting closer than 200 yards to Hilton’s property.
The Hilton family says non of the family members faces any danger while on the property as they have security and video cameras all over the place.
At the moment, Rainford is in police custody for breaking the trespassing order. He has been set a bail of 20,000 dollars.
