Kim Kardashian Paris robbery crime scene revealed: Unseen pictures show gaffer tape and cable ties used to bind star

Chilling images have emerged showing inside the hotel room where Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

Five masked men broke into the reality TV star’s flat in the French capital while she was asleep in bed.

The gang bound and gagged the 36-year-old mother-of-two before making off with £8.5m worth of jewellery.

Unseen footage inside the suite at Hôtel de Pourtalès has been broadcast on French TV, showing gaffer tape used to gag the star and cable ties which were used to bind her hands.

Video was also shown of the robbers sitting outside the A Mon Café, three miles from the hotel where the attack took place on October 3 last year.

Four men have been formally charged over the robbery, in which Kim’s 20 Carat, £3.5million engagement ring was stolen.

One – identified only as Yunice A, 63 – is said to have been one of the five hooded assailants.

Yunice A. is a well known ‘career criminal’ with previous convictions for aggravated theft and for drug trafficking, according to judicial sources.

He now faces another trial for armed robbery in an organised gang, and kidnapping as a member of the same group.

The heist is said to have involved a network of other criminals, and three of them account for the other defendants charged.

One is Gary Madar, the 27-year-old brother of Ms Kardashian’s 40-year-old limousine driver, Michael Madar, who has been released without charge.

Madar and Florus H. accordingly face charges of ‘complicity in armed robbery and kidnapping in an armed gang.’

The fourth man charged is Marceau B, 64, who is said to have travelled to Antwerp, Europe’s diamond capital, to dispose of the jewels.

He has been indicted for concealment of stolen goods in an organised gang, and criminal association.

Marceau B. is also a career criminal, with more than 10 convictions behind him, including one in 1998 for possession and transport of counterfeit money, and one for aggravated theft.

Marceau B. was released from prison at the end of 2011 and charged six months later in a forgery case, but was finally acquitted last summer.

The incredible footage, obtained by broadcaster TF1, shows the suspects scrambling around on the floor for a £30,000 Jacob and Co platinum-mounted diamond cross that they dropped.

It fell between parked motor scooters as the gang made their getaway and was not found until the next morning by an office worker.

Police surveillance footage also shows the gang sitting on the terrace of a café in Paris’s third arrondissement as they plan their next job.
