Kardashian West was held at gunpoint in her hotel room in Paris Sunday evening, which caused Kanye West to cut his performance short at the Meadows Festival in Queens Sunday night.

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 in the early hours of Monday. They stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth 6 million euros ($6.7 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euros.

Kardashian West was not physically harmed during the incident, CBS2 reported. She returned to her New York City apartment on Monday.

Paris police said they were analyzing footage from surveillance cameras to try and identify the assailants, who wore fake police emblems on their jackets.

Paris prosecutors on Tuesday declined to answer whether the robbers had received help from the reality TV star’s entourage. 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.

Kardashian West was in Paris for fashion week. She attended the Givenchy show Sunday evening.

According to Philly.com, the show at the Wells Fargo Center has been rescheduled for December 13.
