Last week over a dozen people were arrested in connection to the October 2016 robbery of Kim Kardashian in Paris. The thieves ran off with millions of dollars worth of jewelry including one of her engagement ring. A French newspaper published a detailed report of the events according to Kim:
“I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted, asking, ‘Who’s there?’ No one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Through the door, I saw two people arrive, plus the night man who was tied up.”
She stated some of the men wore clothing with word “Police” on it and one wore ski goggles:
“It’s the one with the ski goggles who stayed with me,” she said, according to the report. “He demanded with a strong French accent, my ring. It was on the bedside table. It’s worth 4 million dollars. … I told him that I didn’t know, he took out a gun and I showed him the ring.”
She recounted the moment they tied her up:
“They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed. And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs.”
The robbers made off with two diamond Cartier bracelets, a gold, and diamond Jacob necklace, Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings, and a gold Rolex. Kardashian also told authorities that she felt like whoever tied her up was an amateur because of the way they tied her up.
Hopefully, she can find relieve in knowing that arrests have been made in the case.
