French Police Make New Arrest In 2016 Kim Kardashian Paris Robbery Case

Another suspect has been arrested in connection with the 2016 armed robbery of Kim Kardashian West in Paris.

French police arrested the man in Cote d’Azur on Friday, according to a report from Agence France-Presse, and he will reportedly be brought before a magistrate to face charges. Ten people already have been charged in connection with the Oct. 2, 2016, robbery, in which thieves stole $11 million worth of jewellery from her at gunpoint. She was “badly shaken” in the robbery, but otherwise unharmed.

Full details of the robbery have spilt out slowly over the past year and a half. According to a report of the incident, Kardashian was staying with sister Kourtney Kardashian and her entourage at the “No Address Hotel” for Paris Fashion Week when two men — one in a ski mask, the other wearing ski goggles — ambushed her in her room and demanded jewellery at gunpoint. They then tied her up with plastic cables, gagged her and left her in the bathtub before fleeing.

In the months since the robbery, Kardashian has avoided showing off expensive jewellery — that is until January, when she flaunted some serious bling.

After the robbery, a source said of Kardashian’s mindset: “Looking back, she realizes she maybe shouldn’t have flaunted it so much. And you will definitely see a difference with that in the future.”

Kardashian also skipped Paris Fashion Week last year and has had trouble feeling safe while travelling, as she still deals with the trauma of the robbery.
