Kim Kardashian feared she was going to be raped by five masked men in Paris apartment raid

Kim Kardashian bravely freed herself by 'wriggling her hands' after five masked men bound her wrists and ankles with zip ties and left her in a bathtub during her terrifying robbery ordeal in Paris.

Kim feared she was going to be raped during the break-in that left her tied up in her luxury Paris apartment as men dressed as police officers stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry.

But once they had gone she managed to break free from the restraints and scream for help from her balcony.

Kim and Simone were alone in the Hotel Pourtal├Ęs behind the Madeleine church. Built in 1839, it is not a proper hotel, but a portered building containing nine flats designed for multi-millionaires.
Kim had been asleep in just a robe early Monday when she heard the robbers barreling up the stairs of her two-story apartment behind La Madeleine church in the city's 8th arrondissement, TMZ reported.

She was halfway through dialling her bodyguard when her phone was snatched out of her hands. Meanwhile, her quick-thinking friend Simone Harouche sprung from her bed downstairs and locked herself in a bathroom, the website reported.

The fashion stylist and long-time friend of the Kardashians called Kim's personal bodyguard Pascal Duvier, who was out at the Arc nightclub with Kourtney and Kendall less than two miles away.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old reality star begged for her life, screaming that she had two children as five masked men bound her wrists and ankles before leaving her in the bathtub.

Kim managed to squeeze her hands out of the wrist ties by 'wriggling her hands,' a source told People. Another source said she 'screamed from the balcony' after freeing herself, which is when her friend Harouche heard her.

Kim, who later told police she feared she was going to be raped, didn't understand the French-speaking robbers amidst the chaotic scene.
There are fears some of the jewelry stolen in the raid could have included a Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring, diamond grillz and sentimental necklaces designed by her husband Kanye West.

But she heard them repeating 'ring, ring' before she realized they were searching for the 20-carat emerald-cut Lorraine Schwartz ring given to her by husband Kanye West, according to TMZ.

She soon told them where she left the ring, which is worth a reported $4.5million (€4 million /£3.5 million) and last seen on Kim's finger in a Snapchat post earlier that night.

The men, who entered the building after holding the concierge at gunpoint, also stole a jewelry box worth $6.7 million (€6 million/ £5.24 million) before escaping on rented bicycles available throughout the city.

Kim's bodyguard, who managed to return to the apartment two minutes after the men escaped, was blasted for allowing the shocking security lapse while former guard Steve Stanulis suggested it was an inside job.
