Terrifying footage from Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery
has been released by French media.
France's TF1 news channel has released surveillance footage and crime scene photos from Kardashian's October robbery, showing images of both the suspects and the hotel where the theft occurred, including the duct tape and zip ties used to restrain the reality star.
A gang of suspects -- called the "Grandpa Robbers" because some were aged 54 to 72 -- were pursued by French police for months before many were arrested on Jan. 9. Authorities confirmed last month that 10 suspects are facing criminal charges including armed robbery, kidnapping, weapon possession, use of false identity and criminal association in connection with the heist.
A source close to Kardashian told ET
earlier this month that the mother of two had met with attorneys and a French judge in New York City to answer questions about the incident, in hopes of identifying the suspects as robbers.
CBS News reporter Elaine Cobbe tells ET that Kardashian gave a detailed account of the suspects, including that one had piercing blue eyes -- a code name used by one of the robbers seen in TF1's footage.
"She wants this to be over, but is happy that justice is finally being served," a source told ET
, noting that "reliving that night" is hard for the Selfish author. "Kim is very appreciative to the French authorities and everyone who has been involved in finding these men who did this to her. She has been cooperating every step of the way."
During her Monday appearance
on The Ellen DeGeneres Show,
Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, revealed that while continuing to film Keeping Up With the Kardashians
has been therapeutic for her daughter, recalling the robbery for an upcoming episode was especially traumatic.
"Nobody can even get through the first five minutes without being hysterical," Jenner said of the episode. "I get choked up just thinking about it, talking about it. It's remarkable to listen to [Kim] tell the story, and she does that because she just thinks that it might also bring some awareness because it changed the way we live our lives."
