The gunmen were reportedly posing as cops and when Kardashain was held at gunpoint. She was reportedly unarmed but badly shaken. The gunmen made off with $10 million in jewelry. According to the AP, the two gunman tied Kim up and locked her in the bathroom before escaping on bikes. Police said the thieves entered the building after the concierge let them in. Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to Kim’s door.
