(Newser) – Kim Kardashian is "badly shaken but physically unharmed" after being held up by robbers disguised as police officers Sunday night, a spokesperson says. Police in Paris are searching for the robbers, who tied up Kardashian and locked her in the bathroom of a private residence, not a hotel room as initially reported, per the Guardian. Officials tell the AP that five attackers overpowered the building's concierge and two of them entered the apartment. They stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth $6.7 million and a ring worth $4.5 million, police say.

Sources tell People that Kardashian's two children, 3-year-old daughter North and 10-month-old son Saint, were not present during the robbery. Police say that after the incident, Kardashian's family was placed under police protection at a Paris hotel. Kanye West abruptly ended his Sunday night concert at the Meadows Festival in New York after learning that his wife had been robbed. CNN reports that he left the stage mid-song after somebody ran on stage to talk to him. He told fans: "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Family emergency, I have to stop the show."
