Chilling new details. Kim Kardashian’s neighbors were completely unaware of any disturbance at the reality star’s Paris apartment on Monday, October 3, as she was being robbed of millions of dollars’ worth of jewelry and two iPhones.
“[They] did not hear a thing when she was screaming for help,” a Paris-based insider close to the investigation tells Us, adding that the culprits didn’t leave a single trace of DNA at the scene of the crime.
“Forensic enquiries have also been carried out, but as yet there is no useful DNA evidence,” the source says.
Police officials tell Us that there were a number of people staying in the nine-apartment block, but everyone inside the prestigious Hôtel Pourtalès “has now been spoken to, and the neighbors heard nothing at all.”
On Monday, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star — in town for Paris fashion week — was in bed around 2:25 a.m. wearing nothing but a bathrobe when five men dressed as cops reportedly broke into her apartment building. The gang then tied Kardashian’s hands together with zip ties, gagged her, and locked her in the bathroom before they proceeded to steal millions of dollars' worth of jewelry.
The men then rode away from the scene on bicycles. Kardashian’s close friend and stylist Simone Harouche was also in the Paris apartment during the raid, and awoke when she heard noises, calling Kardashian’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier.
A source confirms to Us that Kardashian’s frantic call to her bodyguard was logged at 2:56 a.m. on Monday.
Additionally, Nina Richter, an American linked to Bel Ange (“Beautiful Angel”), a nail salon close to the apartment building, told the U.K.’s Sun that, allegedly, “police seized footage on Tuesday morning [of the gang’s getaway], [but] they told the owner not to speak to the media about it.” Detectives have already confirmed that there was not a single CCTV camera inside or directly outside the block.
According to Richter, the footage shows the faces of the robbers as they ran into a car park and then escaped on bicycles.
Kardashian is “badly shaken but physically unharmed” and currently back in NYC after flying back to the States to be with her husband, Kanye West, and their two young children — North, 3, and Saint, 9 months.
