The incident took place on October 3, 2016 after five armed men made entry to Kardashian's Paris hotel. According to the French Interior Ministry, the masked men handcuffed the concierge, threatened him with a weapon and demanded that he open the door to the fashion mogul's room.

According to Kardashian's statement to French authorities via E!, the alleged criminals wore what appeared to be police jackets. After gaining entry to her room, they demanded that the mother-of-four hand over all of her jewelry and cash.

In the room with her, Kardashian had a jewelry box that contained a Lorraine Schwartz diamond necklace, two diamond Cartier bracelets, gold Jacob necklaces, a diamond necklace, and a gold Rolex watch.
