The five suspects said to have robbed Kim Kardashian of millions of pounds in Paris have been pictured for the first time.
French media yesterday published footage of the alleged gang leaving and arriving at the reality TV star’s VIP apartment on October 3rd.
Shot on a private camera just around the corner from the Kardashian’s luxury apartment block, the video is in black and white and shows three men on bicycles, one with a large bag suspected to be the stolen jewels.
The full footage released by Paris police, starts at 2:19am, and shows three men wearing reflective jackets cycling towards the block. Shortly afterwards two others walk past on foot, the Daily Mail reports.
The gang is then seen leaving with their faces hidden by hoods and balaclavas a full 49 minutes later – a time period which conflicts with claims that the gang only spent a few minutes inside Kim Kardashian’s apartment.
But despite the CCTV footage, after more than two weeks the detectives are no closer to catching those responsible for the heist, in which Kardashian says she had a gun pointed to her head, and was tied up and gagged, along with hotel guard Abdulrahman.
Kardashian, who was in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week, was locked in a bathroom while robbers stole a $4.5 million ring and a case of jewellery valued at $5.6 million.
While a source has said she has ‘zero desire to resume her old life’, Kim has said she is prepared to return to France if summoned by a judge leading the investigation.
The five men thought to have been involved in the robbery face charges of ‘armed robbery by an organised gang, criminal conspiracy and kidnapping’.
