This is not something you'd expect in a neighborhood like Bel-Air... This past Thursday a nude homeless man was arrested after breaking into a family's home and ultimately killing the family pets.
34-year-old homeless man, Paul Kiyan was taken into custody Thursday after he was seen breaking into a home in Bel-Air. The intruder was first seen inside Sabz's family home via security cameras that are installed around the home. When the homeowners first realized the unknown man in their living room, he was clothed in what seemed to be a towel walking around their kitchen, dining room, and living room. When the homeowner's wife first saw the intruder in their home via the camera, she was able to communicate with the homeless man and warned him she was going to alert the police.
Since she was not home, she immediately called her husband who was home getting ready for work at the time. Security cameras inside the home captured a terrifying face-to-face encounter between the homeowner and intruder as the intruder began making his way upstairs.
"I went to the room, closed the door. I didn't know what else to do, so I went to the balcony," Sabz said. "I opened the balcony. I jumped out of the balcony to my car barefoot. I ran and called the police."
Homeowner Mat Sabz told ABC 7 Eyewitness News
In the middle of all of this, the intruder disposed of the towel and roamed around nude. As this ordeal was taking place, the security footage also showed the intruder walking over to a birdcage and killing the family birds.
"He went to the birdcage and violently grabbed our kids' birds and threw them on the floor and stomped on them."
the homeowner added,
"My kids were the one who found their dead birds with broken neck inside the house,"
Sabz's told Eyewitness News.
Fortunately, after this, guards from a private security firm arrived and the LAPD would take the homeless man into custody around 2:40 pm.
Sabz's children are both under the age of 5 and are said to be traumatized by the whole situation. Thankfully, nobody was hurt in this ordeal.
The intruder is said to be unknown to the family. There are more questions than answers at this point.
Kiyan is facing animal cruelty and burglary charges, according to the LAPD.
