Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – A new surveillance video was released possibly showing the attackers of Kim Kardashian when she was in Paris earlier this month and was robbed at gunpoint.
The five men in the video allegedly stole $11 million worth of jewelry from the incident. In the 40-second long video, the alleged attackers were seen on foot and the others were riding bicycles when they approached the hotel where Kardashian was. The video was reportedly released by France’s M6 news channel and was uploaded by publication TMZ in the United States. The video was said to be caught at around 2:19 A.M. on October 3 near the private hotel of Kardashain called Hotel de Pourtales .
As per the reports, the perpetrators fled the private hotel 49 minutes later from when they were first seen approaching the area. A bag could be seen on one of the bicycles. The bag was hanging on the front portion.
Kardashian told officials that she was gagged, tied up, and threatened by men who were masked and armed. Accordingly, they were able to get access to Kardashian’s room as they threatened the other employees at the hotel. The investigation into the Paris robbery is being led by the French police’s Brigade de Repression du Banditisme . It is believed that a group called “Pink Panthers” is responsible for the attack as they are known as the most successful jewel thieves in the world.
The “Pink Panthers” is said to be made up of teams of robbers in Europe and are made up of former Yugoslavian soldiers.
Kardashian’s mother talked to E! News recently saying that her daughter is still undergoing a process since what happened to her was very traumatic. She noted that she is around in order to make sure that her daughter feels safe. Kardashian has not been seen in public events and has cancelled many deals after the Paris robbery. She is said to be expected to be back in the spotlight by January next year.
As of now, Kardashian is spending time with her two children, North and Saint West, and is focusing on their family.
