At least 15 people have been arrested over the Paris robbery of Kim Kardashian West, French media reported.

During the ordeal, she was tied up and locked in the bathroom of her room in a luxury apartment while the masked robbers stole more than $10 million worth of jewelry, the Associated Press reported at the time.

Two of the robbers entered her room and put a gun to her head, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. She cried and begged them not to hurt her. The thieves duct-taped her mouth, tied her up, and put her in a bathtub in an unlocked bathroom. They then robbed her of two cell phones and jewelry worth millions, police officials told the AP.
