(KRON) Surveillance video has been released of the suspects fleeing Kim Kardashian’s Paris hotel after their brazen heist.

French police have been hunting for five people suspected of assaulting Kardashian in a private Paris residence before robbing her of more than $10 million worth of jewelry.

Paris police have been analyzing footage from surveillance cameras to try to identify the assailants, who wore fake police emblems on their jackets.

After forcing their way into the American celebrity’s apartment in the chic eighth district, the robbers held her up at gunpoint and locked her in a bathroom before escaping on bicycles.

Kardashian’s stylist was also in the residence at the time, and alerted police, but Kardashian’s bodyguard was not present, according to the prosecutor’s office..

Interpol declined to comment on reports suggesting the notorious “Pink Panther” jewel thieves could have played a role in the robbery, saying that would be speculation.

According to the world’s largest international police organization, that gang has stolen 334 million euros ($370 million) in jewels from 380 armed robberies between 1999 and 2015.
