A naked homeless man broke into an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood home on Thursday in the middle of the afternoon and then proceeded to swim in the pool, shower, try on clothes, and stomp two pet birds to death.
The man broke into the home using a garage door opener that was left in an unlocked car, according to the police. The owner, Mat Sabz was home at the time taking a shower when his wife checked in on their surveillance system and saw the man in their home. She called her husband who quickly confronted the man after realizing the sounds he heard downstairs were not from his wife.
“I’m upstairs, who’s in the house?” Sabz yelled according to Fox 11. “Hey! Who are you? What are you doing here? It’s my house. What are you doing here? I’m gonna call the police right now,” Sabz informed the intruder.
“He didn’t even move, he looked at me and said this is my house, and he started coming up the stairs,” Sabz recounted. “I said okay I have to escape, I don’t have anything to fight this guy with. So I climb off the balcony and fortunately, the car is in the driveway, I jump on top of the car barefoot,” he noted.

Later, after the man was arrested by neighborhood security, he was identified as Paul Kiyan. age 34. He is being charged with burglary and animal cruelty.
Kiyan was viewed walking around the pool without clothes just before 2 p.m. Thursday. He can be seen roaming inside the home from the wife’s phone.
“I was so frightened and scared that this guy is going to be doing something to my husband,” Monica stated.
She reported that after her husband escaped over the second-floor balcony, they waited for private security and police to arrive on the scene. Kiyan was allegedly in their home for 45 minutes before he was taken into custody.
The owners’ small children were not home at the time of the invasion. But later when the mother brought them home, they found their two beloved parakeets dead.
The father reported that the homeless man had methodically and heartlessly stomped on the two birds: “He went and opened the cage with like a serial killer looking smile – squeezing them, dropping them and stomping on both of them as they are screaming for their lives these birds,” Sabz angrily recalled.
“The other bird knew what was going on,” Sabz recounted. “You can hear the bird screaming and he did the same thing with the second bird. And that kind of changed everything when we saw that he killed these two defenseless animals.”
“It doesn’t matter where you live, it doesn’t matter if you don’t see transients, they could get in, and they got in,” the couple warned after the incident.
The family is so traumatized by the invasion that they’re not staying in their home in Bel Air at least for now. They are just thankful no one was hurt other than their pets.
There was plenty of blame and shock to go around over the home invasion:

Sad when you need to run and hide in your own home.

@MayorOfLA – hard work being the “National Standard in Addressing the Homeless Situation”….. also, probably the quote of the year from @MikeBoninLA “there is no connection in the spike of crime and the homeless”….. just amazing. pic.twitter.com/uBjHWf9n2V
