French prosecutors have laid the first charged against four suspects arrested over the armed robbery of reality star Kim Kardashian during Paris Fashion Week last year.
The charges come as French police arrested 17 people in relation to the incident in a 6am raid earlier this week.
A 63-year-old man, Yunice A, was charged with robbing the 36-year-old star at gunpoint, and leaving her bound and gagged in the bathroom of her luxury Parisian apartment on October 3.
Charges filed against the man involve armed robbery in an organised gang, kidnapping and criminal association. Prosecutors also requested he be kept in detention.
64-year-old Marceau B was charged with helping “pass off’ some of the $14 million worth of jewellery that was stolen from Kardashian. The stolen jewellery is yet to be recovered.
