Kardashian West was locked in a bathroom while the men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, a ministry spokesperson said. The prosecutor’s office said that a ring, worth an estimated $4.5 million, and a jewelry box were stolen.

Kardashian West is currently overseas for Paris Fashion Week along with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. She was staying at a private mansion in Paris, according to CNN affiliate BFM TV.

The French Interior Ministry’s spokesperson said no one was hurt during the incident and that the men did not discharge their weapons. It’s not clear if Kardashian West’s family, including her two young children, were present at the time.
