Tale of the tape! The thieves who allegedly robbed Kim Kardashian West at gunpoint in Paris were, in fact, captured on security cameras as they approached her hotel and as they fled the scene.
The footage from the closed circuit camera is rather grainy, but it clearly shows three people on bicycles and two people on foot as they approach the building at 2:19 am on Oct. 3. The time code on the video (seen here) shows the five thieves leaving the area 49 minutes later that same way, three on bikes and two on foot.
During the getaway, all five people seem to be moving at a much faster pace than they were 49 minutes earlier for obvious reasons. Because the camera is so far away from the street, facial features can't be identified, nor really can the outfits, although it looks like at least two of the robbers may have been wearing hooded sweatshirts.
One person on a bicycle appears to be toting a backpack during the getaway that wasn't present when the group originally headed toward Kim's room. It's likely that it contained the $5.6 million in jewelry that was taken.
Since the robbery, there has been speculation that perhaps some type of video was out there.
Kim, who was bound and gagged during the robbery, has yet to address the incident, but her family has said that she is still shook up from the event.
Khloe Kardashian spoke about her sister a week after the incident, telling Ellen DeGeneres, "Well, I think it's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments. This is a really serious matter for Kim I think that's really personal as to when that emotional terror you could move on from that. I think for us it's all a wake up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure our sister's OK."
She continued, "I mean, she's not doing that well. I mean, it's incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we'll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys' love and support and it will take time. You know it was horrible what happened to her."
In speaking to Australia's TODAY Extra on Oct. 20, Kourtney said of her sister, "She's not doing great. I think we're all really still shaken up and I just — you know, I think she has a big supportive family and I know that all the traumatic things that we've been through, we get through them together as a family. And that's what family's all about."
It was reported this week that Kim is also building a state-of-the-art panic room in her home.
