French Police Arrest 16 People Over Kim Kardashian Robbery in Paris After DNA Test
French police have arrested 16 people over the robbery of Kim Kardashian in Paris after DNA traces were found on some of the stolen jewellery, it has emerged.
The 36-year-old wife of Kanye West was robbed at gunpoint of about 9 million euros worth of jewellery by masked men who tied her up in her apartment in the French city early on October 3.
There are reports this morning that 16 people have been arrested over the robbery, in part thanks to DNA traces left behind.
The French website bfmtv reports that DNA traces were found on an item of her jewellery that was recovered after the robbery.
The perpetrators, some disguised as police officers, fled from the scene on foot and on bicycles.
Days after the raid, a gemstone was found outside the Paris apartment, having apparently been by thieves.
A Paris police source said in October that five attackers, wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings, struck around 3am inside the exclusive apartment block where Kardashian had been staying while attending Paris Fashion Week.
The Paris prosecutor could not be immediately reached for comment.
It comes just days after the reality TV star and socialite – married to rap megastar Kanye West – spoke for the first time of her fears she was going to die in the October robbery.
As sisters Khloe and Kourtney listen, a distressed Kardashian recounted the moment she was bound and thrown in a bathtub
‘They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out,’ she said.
‘It makes me so upset to think about it.’
