New details have emerged from Kim Kardashian West‘s terrifying Paris robbery which left her gagged and bound at gunpoint last October.
French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche published a reported transcript of the 36-year-old reality TV star’s verbal statement to French police about the $5 million jewellery heist.
“I heard a noise at the door, like, footsteps, and I shouted to ask who was there, but no one answered,” the mother of North and Saint West told police, according to the paper.
“I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m.,” she continued. “Then, beyond the sliding doors, I saw two people arrive with the gentleman from reception, and he was tied up. Both men were hooded, one had a ski mask and he had a cap and a jacket with ‘police’ on it. The second man had the same ‘police’ clothes, but did not have any ski mask… It was the one with the ski mask who stayed with me.”
The man in the ski mask reportedly asked Kardashian West for her engagement ring. She acted like she didn’t know what he was talking about at first, but once he produced a weapon, she pointed to her $4 million Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring on a nearby table.
“He pointed the weapon at me. He took the ring. He was wearing gloves. He asked me where the jewelry and money was,” Kim was quoted as saying.
“They grabbed me and took me to the entrance hall. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. We then went back to the room and they pushed me onto the bed. That’s when they tied me with plastic cables and sticky tape on the hands, then they taped my mouth and legs. They carried me to my bathroom, to my bathtub to be precise,” she continued.
Among other items stolen were two diamond Cartier bracelets, a Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace and diamond earrings, gold Jacob&Co. necklaces, including a diamond-studded cross, a gold Rolex watch and a diamond “Saint” choker. As per the report, no cash was taken, but robbers did take the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s Blackberry and iPhone 6.
Kardashian West said after the robbers left, she remove most of her constraints herself, then ran to her friend’s room to call her sister, Kourtney Kardashian. Though she was not injured, she indicated to police she did want to file a complaint, before leaving to return to her kids in the United States.
Last week, 17 people believed to be part of the robbery were arrested by French police, including Kardashian West’s Paris chauffeur. Since then, four of them have been charged, including the brother of the limo driver.
