While Kim’s sister Kourtney departed for an evening out with her assistant Stephanie Sheppard, Kim decided to stay home at the hotel and worked on her computer.

“I heard a noise at the door, like footsteps, and I shouted, asking, ‘Who’s there?’ ” she said, according to the report. “No one answered. I called my bodyguard at 2:56 a.m. Through the door, I saw two people arrive, plus the night man who was tied up.”

The mother-of-two then explained that her attackers wore police paraphernalia, with one wearing ski goggles.

“It’s the one with the ski goggles who stayed with me,” she said, according to the report. “He demanded with a strong French accent, my ring. It was on the bedside table. It’s worth 4 million dollars. … I told him that I didn’t know, he took out a gun and I showed him the ring.”

She continued, according to the report: “They grabbed me and took me into the hallway. I was wearing a bathrobe, naked underneath. Then we went in the room again and they pushed me on the bed. And, it was this time, they tied me up with plastic cables and taped my hands, then they put tape over my mouth and my legs.”

“I think they robbed me of 5 million dollars,” she said. “Then they left on the run.”

Kim however reportedly did not believe that the robbers were professional thieves.

“I felt they were a bit inexperienced because of the way they tied me up,” she said.

After detailing the robbery, she told police that she wanted to catch a private plane to reunite with her then 10-month-old son Saint and 3-year-old daughter North.
